Possibly the best precursor to the winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture is the Producers Guild of America Awards. In an awards year where everything is up in arms, most people were looking at The Revenant, Spotlight, or The Big Short to claim the top spot.
While those odds still leave it wide open, Paramount Pictures' The Big Short was the night's victor, the first win for that studio since Forrest Gump.
