Producers Guild Award Nominations Announced

Movie by Joey Paur

Here are the nominees for the Producers Guild Awards. The PGA nominations are almost like a prediction of the movies that will end up being nominated for and Oscar at the Academy Awards. Last year 9 out of 10 films nominated for the PGA ended up being nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. 

I agree with most of the nominees of the nominees on the list. I'm surprised to see The Town on there. I know a lot of people liked it, but I honestly don't know why. And as much as I loved Toy Story 3 I don't think it's a best picture film. I would have loved to see Winters Bone on the list as well, it was a much better film than The Town. Thats just my opinion. Check out the full list of nominees below and tell us what you think!
