12 Years & Gravity Split Producers Guid Best Picture
A surprise tie hits the awards

12-Years-And-Gravity-Split-Producers-Guild-Best-Picture

For all the attention that the likes of the Golden Globes and (to a lesser extent) the Critics’ Choice Awards receive, the Producers Guild has routinely been the most accurate Best Picture Academy Award prognosticator, with most main winners in the guild’s top categories going on to score at the Academy Awards. So when there is a tie for the top prize – as this year, with 12 Years A Slave and Gravity - it makes the race that much more interesting.

The big loser in this case was American Hustle, which had been picking up statuettes from all sorts of other groups, but didn’t get any love from the PGA. In other categories, Frozen continued its triumphant run in animation, Behind The Candelabra topped Long-Form Television, and Breaking Bad was the not-so-shocking victor in the drama section.

Here is the full list of winners:
