District 9 and Avatar Nominated for Producers Guild Awards

by Iain Welford

The Producers Guild Awards, an often-watched list for Oscar predictions, has published their nominations for best produced films, and films we have been following, District 9 and Avatar amongst others, have made the grade. For years the Producers Guild Awards have been a great precursor to the Oscars, with several films going onto win the golden statue after picking up a PGA award. Taking place on the 24th of January, those in the know will be watching the winners with great interest. The Oscar nominations will be announced a week later on the 2nd of February.

Avatar, District 9 and Star Trek have been announced as contenders for the motion picture of the year as well MovieViral favourites The Hurt Locker and Inglorious Basterds. Also worth a mention is the film 9 which ran a viral prior to its release and is nominated for the animated film of the year award.


It looks to be a great year for Sci-fi films scooping awards, and we wish all of them good luck, especially Neill Blomkamp for his directorial debut with DIstrict 9. What do you think? All deserving entries? Leave your comments below.
