In a pretty big upset, The Hurt Locker took home the top award at last night’s Producer’s Guild of America awards, beating out Avatar and a bunch of other geeky movies. The Hurt Locker’s victory makes Avatar a little bit less of shoo-in to win the Oscar for best picture. Consider this: In the past 20 years, the winner of the top PGA Award has gone on to win the Oscar for best picture 12 times. HMFIC, it’s time to start sweating.
The PGA also handed out awards the awesome 30 Rock, the super awesome Mad Men and the mega super awesome Up. Check out the full list of winners below.
