The Producers Guild of America Awards is one of the most accurate predictors of the Oscar Best Picture winner, with the Guild’s awards falling in step with the Academy’s choice for the best film six out of the last seven years. So, what did we learn from this year’s awards ceremony? That we have no idea which film will be named Best Picture at this year’s Academy Awards. For the first time in PGA history, two films tied for the top honor.
