"Gravity," "Slave" Tie For PGA Award

For the past six years in a row, the Producers Guild Awards have predicted the eventual Oscar winner for Best Picture.

On Sunday night though, things got a whole lot murkier as the two Best Picture front runners in the awards race - "Gravity" and "12 Years a Slave" - both ended up winning the PGA's top award in a tie.

This is the first tie in the 25-year history of the trophy. 17 of the previous 24 films awarded the honor went on to win Best Picture at the Oscars.

The PGA is the largest union of film and television producers with over 6,000 members around the world.
