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."

Alfonso Cuaron and Emmanuel Lubezki

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.

EARLIER: Tonight, I'll be hanging out at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles covering the Producers Guild of America Awards. Red carpet staff are lined up with Tiffany swag bags, passed apps are floating by and producers and presenters, Barkhad Abdi among them, are beginning to hold court in the lobby.

    America very well needed a British film team to capture the levity of Solomon Northup’s story. The entire cast never pulled a punch and finally created a movie as vicious as slavery itself. You can read more about it with some movie art on the Top 10 Movies of 2013 at

    Hope 12 Years wins tonight. It is truly a wonderful film. If it doesn't, and I hope it does, American Hustle should takes the prize.
