PGA Nominees!

These weren't supposed to announce until this morning sometime, but they actually announced last night.  I was planning on posting my predictions today, before the announcement, but I failed at that.  I had nine of the predicted correct, missing Django Unchained for The Master.
The Master is faltering already...
Anyways, here is the list:
“Argo” (Warner Bros.)
Producers: Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Grant Heslov

“Beasts of the Southern Wild” (Fox Searchlight Pictures)
Producers: Michael Gottwald, Dan Janvey, Josh Penn

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

“Les Mis√©rables” (Universal Pictures)
Producers: Tim Bevan & Eric Fellner, Debra Hayward, Cameron Mackintosh

"Life of Pi” (Fox 2000 Pictures)
Producers: Ang Lee, Gil Netter, David Womark

“Lincoln” (Touchstone Pictures)
Producers: Kathleen Kennedy, Steven Spielberg

“Moonrise Kingdom” (Focus Features)
Producers: Wes Anderson & Scott Rudin, Jeremy Dawson, Steven Rales

“Silver Linings Playbook” (The Weinstein Company)
Producers: Bruce Cohen, Donna Gigliotti, Jonathan Gordon

“Skyfall” (Columbia Pictures)
Producers: Barbara Broccoli, Michael G. Wilson

“Zero Dark Thirty” (Columbia Pictures)
Producers: Kathryn Bigelow, Mark Boal, Megan Ellison
This is somewhat expected.  It is nice to see Skyfall making the list.  I don't see it breaking in with Oscar in the Best Picture race since this is a list of ten and Oscar's final ballot won't be that many, but it is getting more love than any Bond film before it, so that's exciting.

  1. I'm happy for Skyfall too, even if it did (theoretically) knock The Dark Knight Rises out. Unless The Master gets in, I think the Best Picture nominees will come from this list.
