Producers Guild nominations announced

The Producers Guild listed The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Dark Knight, Frost/Nixon, Milk, and Slumdog Millionaire as their five nominees today, further sharpening this year’s Oscar race. The last five years, the PGA matched four of the five eventual Best Picture nominees. Could this be the year they go five-for-five? They’d better: Their list matches my Oscar predictions in this week’s EW.

    see dave, you were absolutely correct…

    Wow, go Dave Karger with the spot on predictions!
    Personally, I’m very happy to see The Dark Knight officially nominated for a big award, but also disappointed that Frost/Nixon got in over Wall-E. Even the original Watergate investigators panned it as historical revisionism about a totally insignificant event. Here’s hoping the Academy listens in time.

    Dark Knight should not be there and I question the addition of Frost/Nixon. My favorite by far is Slumdog Millionair

  • Chris

    Solid selections. Although I do feel Wall-E should be considered for Best Picture. And the Dark Knight should be in there. It was an excellent film from top to bottom.

  • Stephen

    Good picks overall, although I do also believe that Wall-E should also be in consideration for Best Picture.

    Hello–The Hottie and the Nottie???

  • Steve-O

    Where’s The Wrestler????

    haha@ all the people that are going to be mad about Dark Knight getting recognition.
    It was a brilliant film.

    I hope this list matches the oscar nominations. If Doubt sneaks in over Dark Knight, I will be very unhappy…

    I was under the impression from critics and reviewers alike that Benjamin Button was a film that would leave me breathless and under a cinematic spell. I enjoy artistic thought provoking films that stay with me when leaving the theatre but in my honest, humble opinion Benjamin Button was not one of these types of films. I feel that it’s commercial success and appeal is due to Brad Pitt who although acted well in the film was not strong enough to carry it in its entirety. It doesn’t deserve a best picture nod.

    What???? What about The House Bunny?? I am baffled.

    I agree, Wall-E! should be in there. I would put it in there over Frost/Nixon… but would not be upset if this five go on to really be nominated. They’re an exceptional batch of films.

    I agree with Kristopher’s viewpoint on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. A bloated, overwrought disappointment. And although I really enjoyed The Dark Knight and think its a great film, I would much rather see Rachel Getting Married get nominated, my favorite film of the year so far.

  • TJ

    The Dark Knight shouldn’t be there. It was good, but it’s a comic book movie: people are taking it WAAAAY too seriously.
