In an unprecedented double victory, both "Gravity" and "12 Years a Slave" tied for best motion picture at the PGA Awards this evening. Accepting the awards were Alfonso Cuaron and David Heyman for "Gravity," and Steve McQueen, Brad Pitt and the Plan B team for "12 Years a Slave."

UPDATED The Oscar race just got a hell of a lot more interesting. In an unprecedented double victory, both "Gravity" and "12 Years a Slave" tied for the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures at the PGA Awards this evening. Accepting the awards were Alfonso Cuaron and David Heyman for "Gravity," and Steve McQueen, Brad Pitt and the Plan B team for "12 Years a Slave."

Predicted winner "American Hustle" went home empty-handed. The PGAs have perennially presaged the Oscar best picture win (a la last year's "Argo") which means that this year's Academy race may have narrowed to two films: "Gravity" and "12 Years." At the SAG Awards Saturday, "American Hustle" took home the Ensemble prize--indicating strong support from the dominant actors' branch--and "12 Years a Slave" nabbed best supporting actress for Lupita Nyong'o (pictured). The DGA Awards expected winner on January 25 is Cuaron.
