Birdman wins Best Movie at Producers Guild Awards.

Birdman is set to take flight at the Oscars having received an additional boost to its chances by winning the highest accolade at the Producers Guild of America awards. Last night’s Los Angeles awards are a key predictor of Academy Awards success as many of the PGA members are also Oscars voters, and for the past seven years the choices for its top trophy went on to win the best-picture prize. The win delivers needed momentum to Alejandro Inarritu’s showbiz romp, starring Michael Keaton, following its upset loss to The Grand Budapest Hotel in the Golden Globes’ comedy category earlier this month. Skotchdopole took to the stage to accept the award with Inarritu saying, “On behalf of all of us, our only ambition was to make a risky and experimental exploration of the cinematic language, of an artist’s complexity played by the incredible Michael Keaton. “I feel humbled by this.

Notably absent from the nominees was Selma, which had been named among the year’s best films by various industry groups, including an Oscar nomination. Other trophies presented last night included The Lego Movie for animated feature – which was another notable absence from the Oscar nominations – Life Itself for documentary film, Fargo for television movie or miniseries, Breaking Bad for TV drama series, Orange is the New Black for TV comedy series and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee for digital series. Next up on the pre-Oscar awards circuit are tonight’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Directors Guild honours on February 7 and the Writer Guild ceremony on February14.
