Producers Guild Nominees: Movie awards season taking shape...

The Producers Guild of America today announced the five nominees for Best Theatrical Motion Picture for 2008.

They are:
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Dark Knight
Frost/Nixon
Milk
Slumdog Millionaire


The list looks strikingly similar to one I published on Dec 29th. I guess you could say I've got my finger on the pulse of the Hollywood elite? lol...I've actually had the chance to see all five of these and this is an amazing list of cinematic accomplishment - you'd do well to see all five. Which is my fave? While I love the illuminating history of Milk and I've watched my DVD of The Dark Knight about three to four times (I just can't get enough of Heath Ledger's performance), it would have to be Slumdog Millionaire as my #1 choice. Do yourself a favour and go see it asap...it's so good!

Not yet, but I really want to soon. Although I've heard it's like number 6 or 7 in the race for the top 5 spots. I'm looking forward to it regardless.
