Producers Guild Nominates "Up" for Best Picture
The Producers Guild of America has released their nominees for the PGA Awards, with Disney/Pixar’s Up landing a berth among the 10 nominees for “Best Picture,” as well as one of the five nominations for “Best Animated Feature.” The other nominees for Best Animated Feature are 9, Coraline, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, and The Princess and the Frog. James Cameron’s Avatar, which utilizes motion-capture CGI animation techniques heavily, was also nominated for Best Picture.
In previous years, the PGA Awards have predicted the Academy Award Best Picture winner in 13 years out of 20, with only one year where the eventual Oscar winner was not among the list of PGA Award nominees. The winners will be named on January 24, 2010.
