The Producers Guild will announce tonight. The party starts around 8pm. The final award of the evening will come around 10pm Pacific time.
The film expected to win tonight is also expected to take the Best Picture Oscar. This, because the Producers Guild, like the Academy, uses a preferential ballot to determine the winner. The only trick is that since the Academy expanded their Best Picture slate in 2009, there hasn’t been a split between PGA+DGA and Oscar. One film has ruled them all up to now. This year might be the exception since there are three strong films vying for the big prize – American Hustle, Gravity, and 12 Years a Slave. So far, the biggest guild, the SAG with 100,000, went for American Hustle. Now, the Producers Guild, with 4,500 members might confirm that choice or they might go another way.
