“Hurt Locker” Beats “Avatar” At PGA Awards

"Hurt Locker" Beats "Avatar" At PGA Awards

Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” upset “Avatar” at the Producers Guild of America’s annual awards, handed out tonight at the Palladium in Hollywood. The film significantly increased its best picture chances with this win – suggesting “Avatar” is not as sewn up a winner as some had suggested. Though in the last 20 years, the PGA honoree has went on to win the Academy’s Best Picture trophy 13 times – which is certainly not a perfect record.

The complete list of winners is below.

The Hurt Locker
Producer(s): Awaiting final credit determination.

PGA Producer of the Year Award in Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures:

David L. Wolper Producer of the Year Award in Long-Form Television:
