    When do you think the PGA will give the Producers Guild Award for “Best Theatrical Motion Picture” to a foreign language film for the first time? For an organization that is the only other major industry award to use a preferential ballot like the Oscars for Best Picture, they not only missed an opportunity last year (ROMA) and this year (PARASITE) to give a foreign language film their top award, but this year, they made themselves less accurate since the beginning of the preferential ballot era (2009).

    7.5 PGA winners in the preferential ballot era matched the Oscar for Best Picture in 11 years = 68.2% accuracy. I’m counting the tie in 2013 for 12 YEARS A SLAVE and GRAVITY as being 50% accurate because they had two chances to get it right. I couldn’t seriously give that a 100% accuracy rating.

    It’s obvious that the PGA is much more white-Male biased than the academy right now, so I doubt it will happen for a while. I’m guessing this is also the reason Parasite got paid dirt at the Golden Globes. In the future, the next time a film like Parasite is a big contender, it might be a good idea to take both with a grain of salt.

    It is worth keeping in mind that PGA is only producers voting. So it made sense they’d find 1917 to be the best-produced film of all the nominees.
