“Oppenheimer” wins the Producers Guild of America award. Oscar almost certain

Producer “Oppenheimer” Emma Thomas, accepting the award in the “best film” category, admitted that there were many outstanding colleagues in the room. “This award means a lot to us, we receive it in front of many people whose work we admire,” she said.

“You know how hard this job can be, and you also know how great it can be. It’s the best job on set,” Thomas assured.

She then called the film’s director Christopher Nolan, who is her husband, “the best producer you can count on.”

The latter also spoke briefly and noted that he and Thomas had been nominated several times for Producers Guild of America awards, but had never won. “Every time we were invited to this room, we felt great support,” he admitted. The director then thanked the cast of the film for their great contribution to its success.

A day earlier, “Oppenheimer” triumphed at the Actors Guild of America awards ceremony. The title won in the categories of best film acting ensemble and best actor in a leading and supporting role.

Both victories are an excellent forecast for the Oscars scheduled for March 10. Nolan’s work is a great favorite in the “best film” category. In turn, Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. they can be almost certain of success in acting terms.

In addition to “Oppenheimer” for the award. Darryl F. Zanuck for best film producer this year’s nominated films were: “Barbie”, “Winter Solstice”, “Poor Things”, “Time of the Blood Moon”, “Anatomy of a Fall”, “Business Zone”, “Maestro”, ” Past Life” and “American Fiction”. All of them have a chance for the most important Oscar 2024.

On Sunday evening, the following films also triumphed: “Jon Batiste: American Symphony” in the best documentary category and “Spider Man: Through the Multiverse” in the best animation category.

In addition, “Succession” was chosen as the best drama series, “The Bear” as the best comedy series, and “Awantura” as the anthology or limited series.
