The Producers Guild of America has given The Hurt Locker more momentum towards a Best Picture win at this year’s Oscars. The guild has awarded their top prize to Kathryn Bigelow’s Iraq war film, increasing its momentum after it won the Critics Choice Award last weekend and wracked up a massive amount of precursors. This was also an important win for The Hurt Locker because it shows that not only critics love this film, but voting members of the industry do as well.
Only 5 times out of 9 has the PGA winner gone on to win the Oscar, but the past two years that has been the case. Can the PGA make it three in a row?
