"Argo" won the Best Picture award from the Producers Guild of America on Saturday night, beating "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Django Unchained," "Les Miserables," "Life of Pi," "Lincoln," "Moonrise Kingdom," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Skyfall" and "Zero Dark Thirty." The PGA Award uses the same preferential system of ballot counting used by the Oscars and often the two top prizes agree. Sizes of the two voting groups is significantly different, however. There are more than 5,000 members of PGA, compared to about 500 members of the academy's producers' branch.

The PGA and Oscars have concurred on 16 of the last 23 Best Picture champs – including all choices in the past five years. Below is the list of PGA Award champs since 2000. Asterisk signifies winner of Oscar for Best Picture:

2011: "The Artist"*
2010: "The King's Speech"*
2009: "The Hurt Locker"*
2008: "Slumdog Millionaire"*
2007: "No Country for Old Men"*
2006: "Little Miss Sunshine"
2005: "Brokeback Mountain"
2004: "The Aviator"
2003: "The Lord of the Rings: "The Return of the King"*
2002: "Chicago"*
2001: "Moulin Rouge!"
2000: "Gladiator"*

This year the two awards agreed on eight nominees. Two of the PGA contenders didn't make the Oscar list: "Moonrise Kingdom" and "Skyfall." Academy voters only chose nine nominees, preferring "Amour" over PGA options.

Of the 14 award pundits polled by Gold Derby, 10 predicted "Argo" would win the PGA Award, while four opted for "Lincoln." See breakdown here.

Twenty-five pundits predict the Oscars: 13 currently believe "Lincoln" will win Best Picture, 11 say "Argo" and one holds out for "Silver Linings Playbook." See breakdown here.

Below is the full list of PGA Awards nominees and winners.
