The Winners of the 33rd Annual Producers Guild of America Awards
The Producers Guild of America (PGA) has just finished handing out their awards for 2021, with a huge shocker of an ending that saw "CODA" taking the top prize, beating assumed frontrunner "The Power of the Dog." Looks like the race for the Best Picture Oscar is not quite as finished as it seemed. The big question now is whether "CODA" will be able to overcome the multitude of obstacles in its way in order to be the big winner on Oscar night, including not having a Directors Guild nomination, not having a nomination for Film Editing, and having only three nominations all together (no film with less than five has won Best Picture in nearly 90 years). One things for sure, this will certainly make next week's ceremony much more exciting than if the assumed winner has been victorious.
Speaking of the Oscars, the ceremony is set to take place on the 27th, so be sure to check back for a complete list of winners.
