Birdman wins Best Movie at Producers Guild Awards.

In something of a surprise, “Birdman” captured the Producers Guild equivalent of best picture on Saturday, beating out another awards-season front-runner, “Boyhood.” The victory is seen as a predictor of the Academy 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 for Alejandro Inarritu’s comedy starring Michael Keaton follows its defeat to the Grand Budapest Hotel at the Golden Globes 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.
