Movieby Joey Paur

As you know the award season is getting ready to blow up.  Everyone is giving their best of lists, and nominations from different type of award ceremonies are popping up left and right. Among them is the Producers Guild of America who announced their annual nominees today.

It's great to see that the Science Fiction genre got some solid recognition this year on the list as films like Avatar, District 9 and Star Trek are all included on the list of nominees. Avatar seems to be making everyone's nominee list this year though. 

So! Here is the list of nominees: 

Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award:
Avatar - James Cameron, Jon Landau
District 9 - Producers: Carolynne Cunningham, Peter Jackson
An Education - Producers: Finola Dwyer, Amanda Posey
The Hurt Locker - Producer(s): Awaiting final credit determination.
Inglourious Basterds - Producer: Lawrence Bender
Invictus - Producers: Clint Eastwood, Rob Lorenz, Lori McCreary , Mace Neufeld
Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire - Producers: Lee Daniels, Gary Magness, Sarah Siegel-Magness
Star Trek - Producers: J.J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof
Up - Producer: Jonas Rivera
Up in the Air - Producer(s): Awaiting final credit determination.

PGA Producer of the Year Award in Animation:
9 - Producer(s): Awaiting final credit determination.
Coraline - Producer(s): Awaiting final credit determination.
Fantastic Mr. Fox - Producer(s): Awaiting final credit determination.
The Princess and the Frog - Producer: Peter Del Vecho
Up - Producer: Jonas Rivera

PGA Producer of the Year Award in Documentaries:
Burma VJ - Producer: Lise Lense-Moller
The Cove - Producers: Paula DuPre Pesman, Fisher Stevens
Sergio - Producer(s): Awaiting final credit determination.
Soundtrack for a Revolution - Producer(s): Awaiting final credit determination.

My one question is where in the hell is the nominee for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs!? That was one of my favorite animated movies this year, it could have easily replaced 9 which was heavy on action but lacked in story.
