PGA Nominates "The Dark Knight" for Best Picture

Posted: January 6th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
PGA Nominates "The Dark Knight" for Best PictureSubmit Comment
Producers Guild of America (PGA) has revealed their nominations for the upcoming Producers Guild Awards, which will take place on Saturday, January 24th at the Hollywood Palladium. The results of the PGA awards are usually very similar to the results of the Oscars, which is why I'm happy to say that the PGA has nominated "The Dark Knight" for Best Picture. The other four films nominated are "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Frost/Nixon," "Milk" and "Slumdog Millionaire."

The PGA has matched the Oscar winners 12 out of 19 times, which gives each movie a great chance to be nominated for an Oscar. While "Button," "Nixon" and "Milk" are solid choices and will likely be Oscar contenders, it's "The Dark Knight" that might be left out of the game.

Should "The Dark Knight" win the Oscar over the other PGA-selected films?

Here is a list of other nominees:

BEST DOCUMENTARY:
* Man on Wire
* Standard Operating Procedure
* Trouble the Water

BEST ANIMATED FILM
* Bolt
* Kung Fu Panda
* Wall-E

BEST TV SERIES (Comedy)
* Curb Your Enthusiasm
* Entourage
* The Office
* 30 Rock
* Weeds

BEST TV SERIES (Drama)
* Boston Legal
* Damages
* Dexter
* Lost
* Mad Men

BEST TV SHOW (Non-Fiction)
* Deadliest Catch
* Frontline
* Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List
* 60 Minutes
* This American Life

BEST TV SHOW (Live and Competition)
* Amazing Race
* The Colbert Report
* Project Runway
* Real Time with Bill Maher
* Top Chef

BEST TV Film
* 24: Redemption
* Bernard and Doris
* John Adams
* A Raisin in the Sun
* Recount

I think it would be a mistake not to at least nominate the Dark Knight for an Oscar, but it is definitely an outsider, despite what many may protest, in the crowded field of Oscar contenders this year. And of course, you won't be able to stop there- you have to follow through and nominate it for everything from best editing to adapted screenplay, stopping short of foreign film of course. And, really, there isn't any reason why TDk shouldn't walk off with a few of those in pocket. But do they have any viable shot at the Big 5? I don't know.
