The Producers Guild of America has officially announced its nominees for the prestigious Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award in Theatrical Motion Picture, ahead of the 24th annual Producers Guild Awards being held on January 24th. The awards are usually a good indicator of what to expect at the Academy Awards, for which the nominations will be revealed on January 10th. The below list contains many of the predicted choices for Best Picture (such as Zero Dark Thirty, Les Misérables and Argo), but the biggest surprise is that the 23rd James Bond film, Skyfall, is among the ten nominees. Could this be the first time that a 007 movie will get a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars? We'll see. Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained is also nominated by the PGA, and you can check out the full list of nominations below.

In my opinion it should be between zero dark thirty and skyfall but knowing the movies that have won in the past I doubt either of the two will win.

Haven't seen Skyfall. I have Casino Royale on DVD, but I don't normally watch James Bond movies.

Life of Pi.

It's about time the James Bond franchise gets recognition at the Oscar's.

Skyfall is by far the best movie on the list and of the year. I've never really be fond of Bond movies but Skyfall is just brilliant.

Django Unchained (The Weinstein Company)
Producers: Reginald Hudlin, Pilar Savone, Stacey Sher


Wow, Reginald Hudlin is a producer on Django. Hmmmm, not surprised.

Also, to any editor... why have all my comments mysteriously disappeared.

Skyfall is the best Bond film but it won't get a Best Picture nomination (even though it deserves one). The PGAs always get one or two wrong. Like last year I think it nominated The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

@teabag, thanks man that's a relief, thought i was semi-banned or something. Lol, feel kinda honored when you put it like that ;)

Django was really good, but I don't think it will win. It's too raw for Hollywood.

the dark knight rises didn't make the list.i wonder why,i'm in a state of shock.

@marvel72 stop trolling kid seriously. TDKR was already nominated the best movie of 2012 through a whole bunch of different sites just to remind you if you forgot those articles already.
