As the Oscar season marathon nears the end, A24’s Everything Everywhere All At Once has struck a crucial blow, taking the Producers Guild of America’s (PGA) top feature award on Saturday night (February 25).
The Daniels’ sci-fi adventure beat a 10-strong field led by seven Oscar nominees to prevail in the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures contest.
One week after a disappointing Bafta haul, this will bring renewed confidence to the Everywhere… camp heading into Sunday’s SAG Awards where the newly-anointed PGA winner vies for multiple honours.
The PGA Awards have become a highly reliable bellwether of Oscars success with the winner, like CODA last year, going on to claim the best picture Academy Award on all but three occasions since 2009.
Oscar final voting runs March 2-7.
Navalny won the Award for Outstanding Producer of Documentary Motion Picture and is among the five Oscar nominees alongside A House Made Of Splinters, All That Breathes, All The Beauty And The Bloodshed, and Fire Of Love.
Oscar frontrunner Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio won the Award for Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures on the night it also won five top prizes at the 50th annual Annie Awards celebrating animation including best feature and direction.
Special awards went to Tom Cruise with the David O. Selznick Award, Warner Bros film co-heads Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy with the Milestone Award, Mindy Kaling with the Norman Lear Achievement Award, and Till with the Stanley Kramer Award.
