La La Land Wins Best Picture At PGA Awards

La La Land just waltzed one step closer to Oscar glory.

Long considered a strong prognosticator for the Best Picture Oscar, the Producers Guild of America Awards are one of the most eagerly-anticipated of the season. The lavish musical won Best Picture honors from the PGAs.

In its 28-year history, the guild has correctly predicted 19 of the eventual Academy Award winners. Not too shabby. All of this year’s PGA nominations, minus Deadpool, went on to secure Best Picture Oscar nods last week.

Oscar nominees O.J.: Made In America and Zootopia were also winners. They won in the documentary and animation categories respectively. Both are favored to win in the corresponding Oscar categories as well.
