Will 'The Power of the Dog' Seal the Deal in Final Awards Season Push Before the Oscars?

The Producers Guild Awards are taking place on Saturday night at the Fairmont Century Plaza hotel in Los Angeles. TheWrap will update the winners as they are announced.

When it comes to predicting which film will win the Academy Award for Best Picture, the Producers Guild’s Darryl F. Zanuck Award is the single most important honor. Because the PGA is the only organization other than the Oscars to use the preferential or ranked-choice system of counting votes for its best-picture award, it was the key award that showed that films like “The Hurt Locker,” “The King’s Speech ” and “Green Book” had the broad appeal necessary to take the top Oscar.

In the 12 years since both bodies expanded from five to 10 best-pic nominees, the Producers Guild winner has gone on to win the Oscar all but three times – but with those three mismatches all taking place in the last six years, the PGA’s record of being a reliable Oscar predictor has slipped.

Still, the film that wins with the guild, be it the favored “The Power of the Dog” or a challenger like “Belfast,” “CODA” or “West Side Story,” will likely become the Oscar favorite.

Honorary awards went to Issa Rae (Visionary Award), Greg Berlanti (Norman Lear Achievement Award), Rita Moreno (Stanley Kramer Award), Mary Parent (David O. Selznick Achievement Award) and George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy (Milestone Award).

Here is the complete list of nominees. Winners are indicated with **WINNER.
