PGA Hails 'No Country'
'Sicko' and 'Ratatouille' also win feature prizes
The Coen Brothers' thriller took home the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award at Saturday (Feb. 2) night's annual Producers Guild Awards gala.
The Groundhog Day celebration was appropriate given "No Country" seems to be taking home a different pre-Oscars award every time you look up.
The PGA prize, which was presented to the Joel and Ethan Coen plus Scott Rudin, can now be added to top honors from the Screen Actors Guild and Directors Guild. The Brothers Coen are also up for a Writers Guild Award, with results to be announced next Saturday.
Then again, the Zanuck Award isn't necessary a harbinger of Oscar gold. The past three PGA feature honorees have been "The Aviator," "Brokeback Mountain" and "Little Miss Sunshine," a trio without a best picture win between them.
Also taking home feature film PGA prizes on Saturday were "Ratatouille," the animated winner, and "Sicko," named as best theatrical documentary.
