'Gravity' and '12 Years a Slave' at PGA Awards (FULL WINNERS LIST)

Thompson on Hollywood By Anne Thompson and Ryan Lattanzio | Thompson on Hollywood January 20, 2014 at 1:06AM

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."

The PGA winner is typically a harbinger for the Best Picture Oscar. This year's ten film nominees are "American Hustle," "Blue Jasmine," "Captain Phillips," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Gravity," "Her," "Nebraska," "Saving Mr. Banks," "12 Years a Slave" and "The Wolf of Wall Street." Whoever wins tonight -- and it's likely to be either "Hustle," "Gravity" or "12 Years" -- may well seal the deal for Oscar night, as so far guild voters aren't bucking Oscar trends as much as last year.

Check out Anne's story about this year's nominations for more background. 

Louis-Dreyfus

6:20 Milling about the red carpet are radiant Louis-Dreyfus, here with her family, suave Leonardo DiCaprio, nominees Ron Howard ("Arrested Development") and Vince Gilligan ("Breaking Bad"), and Morgan Freeman in aviators. Lupita Nyong'o dons another winning dress. For the second time this week, I've seen David O. Russell with a woman on each arm. Follow the Beverly Hilton Instagram for red carpet pics far better than those from my vantage point.

5:45 Among the presenters tonight are Sarah Paulson and Barkhad Abdi (both already in the house), lovely Lupita Nyong'o (fresh off her SAG win last night), Steve Coogan, comedian Billy Gardell, Hollywood mogul David Picker, Chiwetel EjiofirJulia Louis-DreyfusKevin Spacey, Michael B. Jordan and more.
