Totally Geeky PGA Nominations Announced

The Producer's Guild of America just announced its ten nominations for Best Picture. Among them are the usual suspects (Up in the Air, Avatar, Hurt Locker) and a couple of surprises. Namely: freakin' Star Trek and District 9! The PGA has a pretty solid track record in predicting Oscar's Best Picture nominees (though last year they did let The Dark Knight in there), but would the sci-fi averse Academy really snub films like Nine, The Messenger, or A Serious Man in favor of summer-released geek bait? We are skeptical.
