Dark Knight eyes Producers Guild award

Up for best picture

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The Producers Guild of America has announced the nominations for its annual awards, which will see The Dark Knight battle Frost/Nixon for the best picture crown.

Joining them in the ring are The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Milk and Slumdog Millionaire, while Bolt, Kung Fu Panda and WALL-E will slug it out for the top animated feature title.

As the BBC notes, Producers Guild best film laureates often go on to scoop the Oscar equivalent, as proved by No Country for Old Men. It ain't necessarily so, though, as the 2006 winner Little Miss Sunshine proved - pipped in the Oscars by The Departed.

Of note in the TV comedy nominations is the US version of The Office - possible proof that Stateside rehashes of successful Brit series don't always end in televisual crash-and-burn.

Who finally steps up to accept an award will be decided on Saturday 24 January at the Hollywood Palladium. ®
