'Skyfall' joins indies 'Beasts' and 'Moonrise' on list of PGA nominees
Money-making fare such as 'Argo' and 'Lincoln' also included
Nominees for the 24th annual PGA Awards have been announced. Expected money-makers such as "Argo" and "Lincoln" which have been mainstays in the season joined blockbuster fare such as "Skyfall" (Sony's first billion-dollar grosser to date and an over-performer overall) as well as indies such as "Beasts of the Southern Wild" and "Moonrise Kingdom."
That both "Beasts" and "Moonrise" managed nominations is a huge boost for those films' Oscar potential. Some think the former is in for Oscar, others the latter. At the end of the day, both could make the cut, and the overall list of nominees might even look something like the below if there were a full slate of 10.
Films left off, perhaps not unexpectedly, include "Flight," "The Impossible" and "The Master." Though one film's exclusion has me a little surprised: Marvel's "The Avengers." Of course, it's not a major awards sort of film, but it IS the third-highest grossing film of all time and established a paradigm that is sure to be copied by the industry for years to come.
On the animation front, things are as expected. Studio fare dominated. But when the animation branch gets a hold of things, it could look a little different. After all, there are four GKIDS offerings in the mix that had no shot here but could easily appeal to animators, particularly "The Painting" and "The Rabbi's Cat."
