Producers Guild Awards 2019: Complete list of PGA winners in all 13 categories
Last year’s Producers Guild Awards told us which movie — “The Shape of Water” — would win the Oscar for Best Picture weeks before the Academy Awards. In fact 20 of the previous winners of this important prize have then gone on to Best Picture victories.

For the 30th annual PGA ceremony slated for Saturday evening, January 19, at the Beverly Hilton, we already know that the top choice will be at the very least a major front-runner for this year’s Oscar. Could it be a blockbuster like “A Star Is Born,” “Bohemian Rhapsody” or “Black Panther”? Or maybe a critical favorite such as “Roma,” “Green Book” or “The Favourite”?

Seepga Awards predictions: ‘A Star Is Born’ will be reborn with a Best Picture win

We’ll have the actual champs indicated below in yellow with an ** immediately after they are announced. Here is the full list of nominations for the 2019 PGA

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Producer Confirms Bryan Singer’s Reason for Leaving, Says ‘No One’ Was Attached to Play Mercury
Bohemian Rhapsody” producer Graham King provided insight into some of the events surrounding the Golden Globe-winning film Saturday at the Producers Guild Awards Nominees Breakfast, including director Bryan Singer’s departure from the film partway through production.

“It’s an unfortunate situation, with like 16, 17 days to go and Bryan Singer just had some issues, his mother was very sick, and he’s the kind of guy that he needs to have 100% focus,” King explained at the Skirball Cultural Center. “He just said, I want to hiatus the film, and deal with what he had going on in his life. And the studio wanted to finish the film. And of course, my job is to protect the film at any cost and that’s what I was there to do.”

Fox terminated Singer under the “pay or play” provision of his contract, sources indicated at the time, due to his repeated

Producers Guild Nominees Share Notes at Annual Breakfast: "Protect The Film At Any Cost"

Producers Guild Nominees Share Notes at Annual Breakfast:
“My job was to protect the film at any cost,” Graham King, producer of the hit movie Bohemian Rhapsody, said of confronting the biggest crisis on his film — when, with 16-17 days left in principal photography, Fox, the studio behind the film, decided to replace director Bryan Singer. He explained that Singer, whose mother was ailing, wanted to put the production on hiatus, but the studio insisted on movie forward.

While King was talking about a very specific and unusual situation, the definition of his job he volunteered might well have been offered up as a motto which all ...

‘Glass’ Revives Box Office With Top 3 All-Time Mlk Weekend Opening

‘Glass’ Revives Box Office With Top 3 All-Time Mlk Weekend Opening
Though it isn’t looking like it will have the opening weekend analysts expected, Universal’s “Glass” is still doing its job of reviving the box office as it moves out of the holiday season. M. Night Shyamalan’s latest film made $16 million on Friday, and is currently projected for a 4-day total of $48 million from 3,841 screens on Martin Luther King Jr. weekend.

While that’s below the $50 million projections set by Universal and well below the $52-65 million projection set by trackers, “Glass” is still on course to post one of the top three highest Mlk weekend openings in box office history. The all-time best opening is the $107.2 million set in 2015 by “American Sniper,” an outlier as that film went on to gross $350 million domestic. No. 2 on the list belongs to Universal’s “Ride Along,” which had a 4-day opening of $48.6 million in 2015.

The other good bit of news is that opening night audiences didn’t quite reject “Glass” as much as some critics predicted. While the film has a Rotten Tomatoes score of just 35 percent, audiences gave the film a B on CinemaScore. By comparison, Shyamalan’s last film, “Split,” had a 76 percent Rt score and a B+ on CinemaScore. With little competition in the next three weeks, “Glass” will have a chance to leg out into February having already made back its $20 million production budget.

In second place this weekend is Stx’s “The Upside,” which is holding remarkably well and is now poised to join the “Bad Moms” films as one of Stx’s highest grossing films ever. The film added $4.1 million on its second Friday and is expected to drop just 28 percent from its $20.5 million opening with a $14.7 million 3-day/$17.7 4-day weekend total. That would push its domestic cume to $46 million.

In third is WB’s “Aquaman,” which will cross the $300 million domestic mark in its fifth weekend with a 4-day total of $12.3 million. Completing the top five are two Sony films, “A Dog’s Way Home” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” both of which are expected to finish the weekend with a $10-11 million total. “A Dog’s Way Home” is estimated to push its cume to $24.8 million after two weekends, while “Spider-Verse” will see its cume reach $161 million after six weekends.

Outside the top five, Funimation released the shounen anime film “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” on 470 screens, and is projected to make $9.4 million over four days. Meanwhile, Fox’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” will cross $200 million domestic after 12 weekends in theaters, adding $2.7 million this weekend from 1,177 screens.

Oscar Experts’ Top 8 Best Picture hopefuls we’re underestimating: ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ ‘Eighth Grade,’ ‘The Rider’…
What films do our 31 Oscar Experts think will be nominated for Best Picture? Under current voting procedures, there could be anywhere between 5 and 10 nominees, but since that system was established in 2011 there have always been either eight or nine contenders, so that’s probably what we can expect this year too.

At Gold Derby you can predict up to the maximum 10 nominees, and our Experts have reached a consensus about what those likeliest 10 films are: front-runners “A Star is Born” and “Roma” followed by “Green Book,” “The Favourite,” “Black Panther,” “BlacKkKlansman,” “Vice,” “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “First Man” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Is there room for any other films to break through? The following eight films are predicted by at least one of our Experts to pull off an Oscar nominations surprise.

‘A Star Is Born’ Faces Its Oscar Season Moment of Truth at the Producers Guild Awards

‘A Star Is Born’ Faces Its Oscar Season Moment of Truth at the Producers Guild Awards
At Saturday night’s Producers Guild Awards, “A Star Is Born” could take a huge step toward becoming the Oscar Best Picture winner that many people thought it would be as soon as it premiered at the Venice Film Festival in August.

Or it could go home from the PGA looking like the Oscar also-ran that it has appeared to be at some other recent awards shows.

The Producers Guild is the moment of truth for Bradley Cooper’s hit musical, the night on which it absolutely needs to go home with the big prize.

2019 PGA Awards: All the nominees in the 3 film and 10 TV categories for Producers Guild of America prizes
The Producers Guild of America hands out its awards on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019. That is three days before the academy announces the nominations for the Oscars. While the PGA ceremony is not televised, it is an important stop on the road to the Oscars.

The PGA Awards has an enviable track record at presaging the eventual Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards. The guild and the academy have agreed on 20 of the most recent 29 Best Picture champs, including last year’s double winner. “The Shape of Water.”

Since both groups expanded the Best Picture category, the PGA has predicted 70 of the 81 of the Best Picture nominees over the past nine years. Last year the guild went seven for nine in previewing the Oscars line-up: “Call Me by Your Name,” “Dunkirk,” “Get Out,” “Lady Bird,” “The Post,” “The Shape of Water” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” The other four guild nominees were “The Big Sick,

2019 Oscar Nomination Predictions: Our Final Selections, Ranked for Each Category

2019 Oscar Nomination Predictions: Our Final Selections, Ranked for Each Category
The 2019 Oscar race is all about Best Popular Film. Not only does the Academy not need that new category after all this year, but more big-grossers than ever are vying for spots on the final Oscar ballot to be revealed on January 22. Which might mean more people will tune into an Oscar show, rooting for mainstream movies they actually care about.

But while more popular hits, led by Bradley Cooper’s blockbuster “A Star is Born,” (Warner Bros.) are in contention for multiple categories including Best Picture, bragging rights may still wind up with Netflix’s first bonafide Best Picture candidate, Alfonso Cuarón’s cinephile-dream “Roma,” which commanded a more robust arthouse release than any Netflix film to date, along with a lavish promotional campaign, and has been widely viewed on the global streaming platform.

Final Academy Award Predictions Before The Nominees Are Announced

It all has come down to this. On Tuesday morning, the Academy will announce their Oscar nominations. As such, it’s time for final predictions. The Academy Awards this year will be a unique one, that’s for sure, so expect the nominees to largely follow along that path. What follows today is months of work. Slowly but surely, I’ve listen to members of the Academy, studied the precursors, and played some hunches. All that has led to my final predictions update before it goes down bright and early on Tuesday morning. There’s no way to get them all right, but I think these are pretty solid predictions, if I do say so myself. As you’ll see below, I have A Star Is Born still leading the way, both in terms of nomination totals and also in terms of still being the one to beat in Best Picture.

The Shape of ‘Roma’: Will 2 Best Picture Oscar winners in a row be snubbed for SAG’s ensemble prize?

The Shape of ‘Roma’: Will 2 Best Picture Oscar winners in a row be snubbed for SAG’s ensemble prize?
For a whopping 21 years, there was one Oscar statistic to rule them all: In order to win Best Picture you first had to be nominated for the ensemble prize at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. From “The English Patient” (1996) to “Moonlight” (2016) and everything in between, that rule remained unbroken. Then last year it went out with the bath water when Guillermo del Toro‘s fantasy love story “The Shape of Water” won the Academy Award for Best Picture despite being snubbed in SAG’s cast category. Amazingly, this awards stat could now fall two years in a row thanks to “Roma,” Alfonso Cuaron‘s semi-autobiographical film about growing up in Mexico City.

When the SAG Awards announced their five nominated casts earlier this month, Netflix’s foreign language film was left off of the list. Instead the nominees were “Black Panther,” “BlacKkKlansman,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Crazy Rich Asians” and “A Star Is Born.

Bohemian Rhapsody's Award Season Buzz Isn't Just Disappointing - It's Dangerous

Bohemian Rhapsody's Award Season Buzz Isn't Just Disappointing - It's Dangerous
Drawn to Freddie Mercury's unparalleled voice and flamboyance, drawn to the song lyrics that have proved themselves indelible in our collective memory, like so many, I grew up idolizing the Queen frontman. This was before I knew about his sexuality - or even my own - but in many ways, it wasn't a secret. His performance of gender and masculinity was coded in queerness, nuances during the '70s and '80s that now, in hindsight, seem to scream with clarity.

At that time, Freddie Mercury wasn't able to be publicly out and have the career that he did. That's what makes the recent Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie just as scared of his sexuality, so distressing. As the film, which won the Golden Globe for best motion picture drama and best actor for lead Rami Malek, continues to receive accolades, Hollywood is signaling that this is the gold standard for queer storytelling.

At long last here we are: Oscar nominations predictions time. This has been one of the noisiest awards seasons I’ve ever covered, as A Star Is Born made a big splash last fall, only for the next few months to be dominated by think piece after think piece after think piece.
