Star Trek's Nomination For Producers Guild Awards Could Be Oscar Precursor

Star Trek's Nomination For Producers Guild Awards Could Be Oscar Precursor

According to an article in the LA Times, J.J. Abrams's "Star Trek" recieved a nomination for the Producers Guild of America Awards.  It seems that this year's PGAA is chock full'o SciFi.  "District 9" and "Avatar" are among the 10 nominees announced.  Apparently, the winner of the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year film award is a precursor for some 13 Oscar best picture winners over the two last decadse.  We can dream can't we.  I mean, what are the chances that a Trek film would win let alone be nominated for an Oscar. What a crazy time to be a Trek fan!

If "Star Trek" doesn't win, I'm going to travel back in time and blow up Vulcan.  They deserve it. right?

This year, the PGA has followed in the footsteps of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' decision to expand the best-film nomination list from five to 10 movies. Their eclectic group of films, which ranges from blockbusters to small independent productions, may mirror the academy's choices, which will be announced Feb. 2.

The other seven nominees joining the sci-fi trio are "An Education," "The Hurt Locker," " Inglourious Basterds," "Invictus," "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," "Up" and "Up in the Air."

Disney/Pixar's "Up" was also nominated for the PGA's Producer of the Year Award in the animated category. Joining "Up" are "9," "Coraline," "Fantastic Mr. Fox" and "The Princess and the Frog."

Nominees for the PGA Producer of the Year Award in the documentary category are "Burma VJ," "The Cove," "Sergio" and "Soundtrack for a Revolution."

The awards will be handed out Jan. 24 during a ceremony at the Hollywood Palladium. (source LA Times)
