Do we actually have an Oscar race on our hands after all? The King’s Speech won the Producers Guild of America award tonight, beating front-runner The Social Network. In the last three years, the PGA winner went on to win the Academy Award (The Hurt Locker, Slumdog Millionaire, and No Country for Old Men), though in the three years before that, the PGA winner ended up losing the big Academy prize. Whatever ends up happening, it’s clear that despite The Social Network‘s critic-award sweep, we actually have a close contest for the Oscar. Other PGA winners included Waiting for “Superman” for documentary and Toy Story 3 for animated film, while Mad Men, Modern Family, The Pacific, and The Colbert Report picked up the TV prizes.
