Producers Guild Awards 2018: The Complete Winners List, from “The Shape of Water” to “Coco” and “Jane”

Producers Guild Awards 2018: The Complete Winners List, from “The Shape of Water” to “Coco” and “Jane”
The Producers Guild Awards anointed “The Shape of Water” as its Best Picture, the same result as last week’s Critics’ Choice Awards. Guillermo del Toro’s “fairy tale for troubled times” was previously the most-nominated Golden Globes and BAFTA Awards feature, giving Fox Searchlight reason to feel hopeful in ahead of January 23 Oscar nominations.

However, tonight’s event at the Beverly Hills Hilton was more somber and subdued. “Shape of Water” co-star Richard Jenkins read a letter from del Toro: “Life has a way of keeping you in check. So as you sit there tonight, I stand by the side of my father’s bed, in my hometown in Mexico.”

Milestone Award and Visionary Award honorees Donna Langley (Universal Pictures Chairman) and Oscar-winning director Ava DuVernay (“13th,” “A Wrinkle in Time”) respectively used their stage time to remember Allison Shearmur, producer of films like “The Hunger Games” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,

2018 PGA Awards report: ‘The Shape of Water’ wins Best Picture against tough field of 11 contenders

2018 PGA Awards report: ‘The Shape of Water’ wins Best Picture against tough field of 11 contenders
The 2018 Producers Guild Awards were handed out on Saturday night, January 20. These awards celebrate the best producing achievements in film and television, and the big-screen winners often give us an idea of who will take top honors at the Oscars. Scroll down for our live updating report on the night’s winners and what it means for the awards season to come. Check out the complete list of winners in all 12 categories here.

The very first Best Picture winner at the PGA Awards was “Driving Miss Daisy” in 1990. That film went on to win the top Oscar, and in total 19 out of the PGA’s 28 previous picks have gone on to claim Best Picture honors at the Academy Awards (68%). And in the last 10 years the correlation has been even stronger, with the two groups agreeing eight times (80%). However, the last two years have been anomalies. In 2016 “The Big Short” won

2018 PGA Awards winners: Full list of Producers Guild winners in all 12 categories for film and TV

The 2018 Producers Guild Awards were presented on Saturday night, January 20. These are the 29th annual kudos celebrating the best producers in film and television. Historically they have been known as an especially strong predictor of the Oscars, with 19 out of the 28 previous PGA winners going on to claim Best Picture from the motion picture academy, which is a 68% rate of agreement between the two industry organizations. Scroll down for the complete list of winners in all 12 categories.

The Producers Guild has had an even stronger track record forecasting the Oscars in recent years. Eight of the last 10 PGA champs have matched the Oscar choice (80%), and since 2010 both the motion picture academy and the PGA have used a preferential ballot to determine the winners. That unique voting method prioritizes consensus choices over passionate picks. That makes the PGA Awards the first industry event where we get to see what Hollywood can

2018 SAG Awards: 4 reasons why Alexander Skarsgard (‘Big Little Lies’) will complete awards sweep on Sunday

On Sunday, January 21, Alexander Skarsgard is hoping to complete his awards sweep for HBO’s “Big Little Lies” by taking home the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Award. (See the list of SAG nominations.) While Gold Derby’s combined predictions have Skarsgard tied with Robert De Niro (“The Wizard of Lies”) at 6/5 odds to win, scroll down to see why I predict that Skarsgard has the edge over all of his competitors: De Niro, Jeff Daniels (“Godless”), Benedict Cumberbatch (“Sherlock: The Lying Detective”) and Geoffrey Rush (“Genius”).

Clean sweep — The Swedish actor has already claimed victory at the Emmys, Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards for “Big Little Lies,” so a SAG triumph would give him a clean sweep of the four major televised kudos. Sometimes sweeps just happen and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop them. Look at Sarah Paulson‘s awards domination last year for “The People v.

2018 PGA Awards: All the nominees in the 3 film and 9 TV categories for Producers Guild of America prizes

The Producers Guild of America hands out its awards on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018. That is the night before the Screen Actors Guild does the same. Unlike, the latter, which will air on TNT and TBS, the PGA ceremony is not televised. However, it is an equally important stop on the road to the Oscars.

The PGA Awards has an enviable track record at presaging the eventual Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards. The guild and the academy have agreed on 19 of the most recent 28 Best Picture champs. Last year, all nine Oscar nominees for Best Picture numbered among the 10 PGA contenders; only “Deadpool” was snubbed by the academy. The PGA prize went to “La La Land” while the Oscar was (eventually) won by “Moonlight.”

Oscars 2018: Margot Robbie (‘I, Tonya’) could make history as an actress and producer

Oscars 2018: Margot Robbie (‘I, Tonya’) could make history as an actress and producer
Margot Robbie (“I, Tonya”) is a shoo-in for a nomination for Best Actress next week, but she could end up making Oscars history in another category as well as was recently reported by one of our Experts, Sasha Stone (Awards Daily). Robbie is also a producer of the film, so if “I, Tonya” also receives a Best Picture nomination she would be the first actress to receive acting and producing nominations for the same film. After a year that saw actresses Nicole Kidman (“Big Little Lies”), Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) all win Emmys as both actors and producers of TV programs, it would be fitting for Robbie’s passion project to go the distance with a pair of historic Oscar nominations.

It has been an incredible year for female stories, both real and fictional. The “Me Too” and “Time’s Up” movements have shined

2018 SAG Awards TV predictions: Complete racetrack odds in all 9 categories

The 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place Sunday, January 21, in a live ceremony airing on TNT and TBS (8/7c) hosted by Kristen Bell — the show’s first host ever. While it’s just the latest stop on the long Oscar campaign for films, it’s the final major awards show of the season for TV folk until the Emmys in September.

SAG doesn’t have perfect correlation with the Emmys, partially due to the fact that the former doesn’t feature supporting TV categories and because SAG voters love repeat winners more than anyone. SAG’s top award, for ensemble, has also honored a handful of casts whose shows have not won a series award at the Emmys, including three-time champs “Orange Is the New Black” and Downton Abbey,” and two-time champ “Boardwalk Empire.”

Stranger Things” and “Glow” are the most nominated shows with four each in a field dominated by Netflix,

2018 Producers Guild Awards: Complete odds in 8 film & TV categories include ‘Three Billboards,’ ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ …

The Producers Guild Awards have been one of the most closely watched races in the run-up to Oscars because they have presaged the academy’s choice for Best Picture eight times in the last 10 years. However, the two times they disagreed were the last two years in a row, despite the fact that the PGA uses the same preferential ballot that decides the Oscars. Are they still a reliable bellwether? Scroll down for our complete predictions in eight categories for film as well as TV. The nominees are ranked in order of their racetrack odds, with the projected winners highlighted in gold.

There are 11 nominees for Best Picture at this event, and chances are good most of the eventual Oscar nominees for Best Picture — if not all of them — are on the PGA’s list. We’re currently predicting a victory for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” but this is

SAG Awards predictions secret: Size matters for comedies like ‘Orange is the New Black,’ ‘Glee,’ ‘Desperate Housewives’ …
When it comes to rewarding the best comedic cast on television, the SAG Awards often simply go with the biggest cast. Recent winners like “Orange is the New Black” (2014-2016), “Glee” (2009), “Desperate Housewives” (2004-2005) and “Ally McBeal” (1998) all prevailed thanks in part to having the most cast members on the voting ballot. Interestingly enough, all four of these were also hour-long dramedies, which suggests SAG voters are more apt to give the prize to large casts when they’re also in large productions.

What does this statistic mean in terms of predicting the 2018 SAG Awards? “Orange is the New Black” once again boasts the biggest comedy cast with a record-setting 45 men and women nominated for the Netflix prison series. That’s up from 37 cast members in 2016, 34 in 2015, and 40 in 2014. Of this year’s other nominated ensembles, Netflix’s “Glow” consists of 18 cast members, followed by HBO’s “Veep” at 15, ABC
