With all of the shock and disgust awe of the Oscar nominations I’d completely forgotten about the PGA. Tom O’Neil has cornered the market on gathering predictions for these big awards – but we have our little rag tag group of pals anyway. If you are interested in what the Gold Derby folks are predicting, here is the way it’s going down. As I recall, these awards come late, like 11pm or something like that.
Most are predicting Slumdog to take it, but a few are predicting Benjamin Button (which I think is astute, considering its producers).
PRODUCERS GUILD OF AMERICA AWARDS: PREDICTIONS
“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” David Carr, Carpetbagger
“The Dark Knight” – Sasha Stone, Kris Tapley
“Slumdog Millionaire” – (expected winner), Damien Bona (Inside Oscar) Steve Mason, (Big Hollywood)
Curiously, no one is predicting The Dark Knight. Why? Because it was just given the old heave-ho by the Academy. Could that have really impacted how the PGA voted? If The Dark Knight had been in I can guarantee you more people would be predicting it for this honor and I think I might predict it just to be obstinate because sometimes being a bitch is all a woman has to hold on to (psst. Slumdog will probably win). Hell, Milk might win. One never knows these things.
