‘Gravity’ and ’12 Years a Slave’ Make History at the PGA Awards

Gravity and 12 Years a Slave Tie PGA Awards

Notably, the PGA Awards have been looked upon as one of the best bets to determine which film would walk away with the Oscar for Best Picture. According to IndieWire.com, the PGA winner for Best Picture has matched the Oscars 17 times over the past 24 years, the last six times in fact. But with so many incredible movies in 2013 the Producers Guild of America knocked Hollywood on its ass by giving both Gravity and 12 Years a Slave Best Picture at the awards last night. Keep reading to learn more, and find out the rest of the winners of the 25th Annual PGA Awards.

As the famous saying goes, “there can only be on.” and that will ring true come March 2 at the Academy Awards. However, it is historical to note that this is the first time two films have tied for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. I wouldn’t count this as any indication that 12 Years a Slave will lose, because in my mind it has the best shot of winning the Oscar, this just goes to show you how conflicted people are because they are both so great and completely different films. I could only imagine what it was like in the room since the awards are not televised.

But what does this say about American Hustle, which has been grabbing all of the attention from the Golden Globes and SAG Awards. I highly doubt that it will win Best Picture, but this definitely puts a damper on its campaign. Let that one marinate for awhile.
