Producers Guild of America Predictions

Producers Guild of America Predictions

PGAThe Producers Guild of America will announce their winner tomorrow.  Speaking with Staff Writer Mark Johnson yesterday, he affectionately told me that this weekend will probably just confuse us even more.  I’m scared to agree.

With ten nominees:

  • Argo
  • Beasts of the Southern Wild
  • Django Unchained
  • Les Miserables
  • Life of Pi
  • Lincoln
  • Moonrise Kingdom
  • Silver Linings Playbook
  • Skyfall
  • Zero Dark Thirty

It seems to be between three films; Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, Ben Affleck’s Argo, and David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook.  Any of those three can easily win with a slim, outside shot for Life of Pi.  There are a lot of unprecedented factors and history that can follow if certain things come to fruition.  That will come in a later piece during the weekend.  For now, I’m thinking Lincoln might have this one locked up.  With the Producer trio of Argo including George Clooney, Ben Affleck, and Grant Heslov could be a close second.

Prediction – Lincoln

Alternate – Argo

    I’m a little surprised Clayton. You’ve been going Lincoln for every award so far and it hasn’t one yet. I figured you would have moved on by now. I think it’s pretty obvious that it isn’t going to win anything.

      Nothing is obvious this year. How soon we forget The King’s Speech…

        The King’s Speech won everything… that was pretty obvious…

          Although I do agree that this year is really exciting, but I don’t think Lincoln is taking anything. I think Argo takes the PGA.

    I agree, it’s an open race and thus a lot more exciting than previous years.

    My heart says Argo but my head says Lincoln. That being said, Silver Linings Playbook could really upend the race here if it pulls off a shocker…
