Last night, I heard that the PGA had honored 1917 as the best film of 2019 and I thought to myself, “Well, that’s good for the golfers but since when did they become film experts?”
This morning, I woke up and I realized that the PGA was the Producer’s Guild of America, which means that 1917‘s victory is now officially a big deal. If Sam Mendes wins at the DGA, I would imagine that would mean that 1917 is officially unstoppable as far as the Oscars are concerned. Of course, just yesterday, I was saying that the Eddie Awards had made Parasite into an unstoppable Oscar winner.
So, maybe I know what I’m talking about and maybe I don’t.
Anyway, the PGA gave out a lot of awards last night but here are the three that you need to know while making your Oscar predictions:
Best Feature Film — 1917
Best Animated Film — Toy Story 4
Best Documentary Film — Apollo 11
(Apollo 11 was, incredibly, not nominated for Best Documentary.)
