Back in 1990, the Producers Guild of America held its first awards ceremony — the PGA Awards were then known as the Golden Laurel Awards. The winners in the Best Produced Motion Picture category were Richard Zanuck and Lili Fini Zanuck for the eventual Best Picture Academy Award winner Driving Miss Daisy, a mix of melodrama and comedy set in the American South, directed by Bruce Beresford, and starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.

PGA Awards vs. Best Picture Academy Awards

From then on, every single PGA Award winner went on to earn a Best Picture Academy Award nomination, and only seven of those failed to take home an Oscar statuette. The unlucky ones were Neil Jordan’s The Crying Game (1992), Ron Howard’s Apollo 13 (1995), Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan (1998), Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge! (2001), Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator (2004), Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain (2005), and Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris’ Little Miss Sunshine (2006).

For the record, the respective Best Picture Oscar winners in those years were the following: Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven (1992), Mel Gibson’s Braveheart (1995), John Madden’s Shakespeare in Love (1998), Ron Howard’s A Beautiful Mind (2001), Clint Eastwood’s Million Dollar Baby (2004), Paul HaggisCrash (2005), and Martin Scorsese’s The Departed (2006).

PGA Awards: Clint Eastwood 0, Steven Spielberg 2

A couple more for the record: No Clint Eastwood movie has ever won the PGA Award. Steven Spielberg is the only director whose movies have won two PGA Awards: Schindler’s List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998).

Last year, the PGA Award winner for Best Produced Motion Picture — now known as the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures — was Michel Hazanavicius’ Los Angeles-shot but French-made The Artist, which also became the first 100 percent foreign-produced movie to win the Best Picture Oscar.

The Producers Guild of America has more than 5,400 members. That’s nearly as many as the total Academy membership (around 6,000).
