nominees//27th PRODUCERS GUILD AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE



As one of the major precursors of the Oscar season, the Producers Guild Awards are given by the Producers Guild of America and generally give a good view as to what the Academy Award Best Picture group could look like.

This year's nominees included typical mentions for films like Spotlight and The Big Short, but failed to mention popular flicks like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and critically-acclaimed films like Carol. It's quite the shake up! It's definitely safe to say Mad Max: Fury Road is no longer an underdog and will end up with a Best Picture nod. Which means, Ex Machina may have become the new underdog.
