The Producers Guild of America have announced “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “The Dark Knight,” “Frost/Nixon,” “Milk” and “Slumdog Millionaire” as their five candidates for Best Picture.
The list is seen as a significant one as the PGA’s best film nominees often exactly match those of the Oscars with only the occasional exception. The Oscar nominations won’t be announced until January 22nd.
“Man on Wire,” “Standard Operating Procedure,” and “Trouble the Water” will compete for best documentary, while “Bolt,” “Kung Fu Panda” and “WALL-E” vie for animated feature.
The Producers Guild Awards take place on Saturday, January 24th at the Hollywood Palladium.
