PGA Announces Nominations

The Producers Guild of America announced its annual nominations this afternoon, which are generally seen as a stronger Oscar bellwether than most. I'm not sold on a nomination for The Ides of March or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but stranger things have happened. These guys are the money men, and that's generally reflected in their choices.


The nominees are:

THE ARTIST Producer: Thomas Langmann
BRIDESMAIDS Producers: Judd Apatow, Barry Mendel, Clayton Townsend
THE DESCENDANTS Producers: Jim Burke, Alexander Payne, Jim Taylor
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO Producers: Ceán Chaffin, Scott Rudin
THE HELP Producers: Michael Barnathan, Chris Columbus, Brunson Green
HUGO Producers: Graham King, Martin Scorsese
THE IDES OF MARCH Producers: George Clooney, Grant Heslov, Brian Oliver
MIDNIGHT IN PARIS Producers: Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum
MONEYBALL Producers: Michael De Luca, Rachael Horovitz, Brad Pitt
WAR HORSE Producers: Kathleen Kennedy, Steven Spielberg

And the animated nominees:

THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN Producers: Peter Jackson, Kathleen Kennedy, Steven Spielberg
CARS 2 Producer: Denise Ream
KUNG FU PANDA 2 Producer: Melissa Cobb
PUSS IN BOOTS Producers: Joe M. Aguilar, Latifa Ouaou
RANGO Producers: John B. Carls, Gore Verbinski
