     January 23, 2011

It seemed like The Social Network had a clear path to the Academy Awards, but the dastardly Producers’ Guild of America may prove an obstacle.  The King’s Speech took home Best Picture at the Producers Guild Awards last night in a notable upset.  Over the past 20 years the Producers Guild and the Oscars have agreed on 13 of 20 Best Picture winners.

Everything else went down about as expected for both film and television.  Toy Story 3 won Best Animated Feature, and Waiting for “Superman” was named Best Documentary.  In TV, the PGA honored Mad Men, Modern Family, The Pacific, The Colbert Report, and Deadliest Catch.  Hit the jump for the full list of winners.
