2020 PGA Awards Winners: '1917' Wins Again, Making It The Frontrunner For Best Picture At The Oscars

This weekend, the 31st Producer's Guild Awards honored achievements in producing film and television from last year. This is one of the key awards that start to give us an idea of what movie is likely to take home Best Picture when the Oscars are handed out, so everyone was waiting to see what movie won The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, the equivalent of Best Picture among the 2020 PGA Awards winners.

In a turn that was a little less surprising after its victory at the Golden Globes a couple weeks ago, Sam Mendes' war drama 1917 landed the top prize. But who walked away with awards for animated and documentary features, as well as all the television awards? Get the full list of 2020 PGA Awards winners below.

Director and producer Sam Mendes accepted the award along with Pippa Harris, and Mendes offered up this thanks during his speech (via The Hollywood Reporter):

"To work with so many artists all working at the peak of their craft — led, of course, by Roger Deakins — was humbling and joyful and by far, the best experience of my professional life."

Indeed, the work of cinematographer Roger Deakins and the incredible visual effects team is what makes 1917 such a magnificent achievement in film. While some aren't sure that necessarily makes it better than some of the other movies in the conversation for Best Picture, it's clearly impressive enough to those in the industry.

Eight out of the last ten winners of the top prize at the PGA Awards have gone on to win Best Picture. The only two years that diverged from that pattern were in 2018 and 2017 when the PGA Awards honored La La Land and The Big Short. But when the Oscars rolled around, Best Picture went to Moonlight and Spotlight, respectively. There's still a chance 1917 doesn't walk away with Best Picture, but the odds are certainly in its favor.
