It only took 23 tries, but 007 has finally found his groove. Not only has the latest James Bond flick, Skyfall, become the first in the franchise to pass the $1 billion mark, but the film might also be headed for Oscar glory. In a surprising twist, Skyfall earned a nomination from the Producers Guild for Best Film. It’s the first Bond film to be honored by the PGA in its 24-year history.
Since 2007, five winners of the Producers Guild Awards have gone on to also nab Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Last year, only three films didn’t line up with the Oscar nominees. Bridesmaids, The Ides of March and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo were snubbed by the Academy. The year before that, the PGAs were only off by one with The Town losing a spot to the Academy’s choice of Winter’s Bone. Better dust off that tuxedo Daniel Craig, you might be headed to the big event this year.
The Producers Guild Awards ceremony, which will be produced by Michael De Luca, will take place on Jan. 26. Check out all the films nominated this year below.
