The PGA is usually the most accurate way to predict the Oscar nominees for Best Picture. Thousands of Hollywood and foreign producers vote for the PGA awards. Those same producers are most likely, or at least the majority of them, Oscar voters as well.
So today's announcement of the ten PGA nominees for Best Picture is telling us this: "Crazy Rich Asians," "A Quiet Place," and "Bohemian Rhapsody" have a really good shot at getting nominated for an Oscar. Also, despite mixed reviews, Hollywood seems to really like the Dick Cheney Biopic, "Vice." Snubs today include "Mary Poppins," "If Beale Street Could Talk"and "First Man," but they could, of course, sneak into the Best Picture race, time will tell.
