Oscars 2016: The Big Short Wins PGA

So, the Producers Guild of America Awards took place last night and I have to say, they have made this year even crazier. When they could've easily sealed the fate of critical darling Spotlight (Critics Choice Winner) or Golden Globe winners The Revenant and The Martian, they gave best Motion Picture to The Big Short. 

But the fates of Amy and Inside Out have been sealed as they have won Best Documentary and Animated Film respectively. They're both safe bets going into Oscar night at this point.

Of course, winning PGA isn't always an indicator of Best Picture. In 2004, The Aviator won PGA, but Million Dollar Baby won Best Picture. Also, Moulin Rouge! won PGA in 2001, but Best Picture went to A Beautiful Mind. But more often than not, it is a good indicator as to what the big prize goes to.

So the Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on Saturday and I'm quite curious to see the direction they go on as well. Until then, thanks for reading!
