A few days ago, the PGA announced their 10 nominations for the Producer of the Year Award. Here are the nominees:
The Hurt Locker
Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire
Up in the Air
Okay, I know what you’re probably thinking. How are these ten selections going to match up with the Best Picture nominees? For the most part, I’d say they’re very accurate. The snubbing of Nine and A Serious Man for sci-fi films District 9 and Star Trek is eye-opening. While District 9 has a much greater chance to be nominated for Best Picture than Star Trek, it is interesting to ponder. The rest of the films are basically locks for a Best Picture nomination. The last two spots are still undecided between Nine, A Serious Man, The Last Station, District 9, Star Trek, and The Messenger.
