A double whammy of awards season stuff today, so with very little ado, let's crack on with it.
PRODUCERS' GUILD AWARDS (PGA) WINNERS
On Saturday 28th January, the Producers' Guild of America announced its winners for the 2017 Producers' Guild Awards.
The film winners are:
Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures: La La Land
Documentary Film: O.J.: Made In America
Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures: Zootopia
No real surprise with either La La Land or Zootopia's wins as they've been the stand-out winners in their respective fields all throughout the awards season. All three films have been nominated in their respective categories for the Oscars so surely this doesn't do their chances of winning any harm.
SCREEN ACTORS' GUILD (SAG) AWARDS WINNERS
Yesterday (29th January), the Screen Actors' Guild Awards were announced. Here are the film winners:
Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture:
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role:
Denzel Washington (Fences)
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role:
Emma Stone (La La Land)
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role:
Mahershala Ali (Moonlight)
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role:
Viola Davis (Fences)
Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Film:
Interesting to see that the SAG voters went for Emma Stone and Denzel Washington over Natalie Portman and Casey Affleck, but it's always good to shake things up a little bit lest it all gets a bit predictable. No surprises with Ali and Davis' wins, which must bode well for the Oscars.
Next up in awards season will be the Directors' Guild Awards which are announced on February 4th.
