Gravity and 12 Years a Slave Are Your Oscar Favorites

Thursday we learned the nominees for the Best Picture Oscar. Now, only a few days later, we have our clear frontrunners: Gravity and 12 Years a Slave. The two films tied for Best Picture at last night's Producer's Guild of America Awards (the first time that's ever happened), beating out a category that included basically all the Oscar nominees. The PGA has correctly predicted the last six Best Picture winners, which makes these two very different films the favorites. Other winners from the night included Frozen (Best Animated), We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks (Best Documentary), Modern Family (Best Comedy Series), and Breaking Bad (Best Drama Series). Relax, BB fans, this doesn't mean it can somehow make a late run for an Oscar. Or does it!? (It doesn't.)
