After being snubbed at the Baftas last week, Everything Everywhere All At Once resumed the race to the Oscars. The movie of Daniels produced by the independent studio A24 won the most prestigious of the Producers Guild of America awards, what is often considered a precursor to the Academy Awards. Other winners of the evening were Navalny for Best Documentary and Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio for Animated Feature

For TV The Bear and the second season of White Lotus set in Sicily. The David O. Selznick Achievement Award, the equivalent of a lifetime achievement award, went to Tom Cruise, whose passion and persistence led to the making of Top Gun: Maverick which in turn brought audiences back to theaters. Everything Everywhere arrives at the Oscars on March 12 with eleven nominations, more than any other film in the race and last week it had won the Directors Guild of America award anticipating the almost certainty that the Daniels (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) will win as best director. At the Baftas, however, the film with Michelle Yeoh had been sidelined by Edward Berger’s seven-time award-winning All Quiet on the Western Front about the trenches of World War II. The film by A24, the only production studio that takes its name from a motorway (Rome-Teramo), had only received one award in a technical category. The PGA uses the same voting system as the Oscars: this is one of the reasons why its ‘best’ film and that of the Academy Awards almost always coincide. Last year Apple’s Signs of the Heart had received a strong push towards the Oscars from the night of the PGAs: it was the fourth time in five years that the two most prestigious awards coincided. Tonight the prizes of the Sag, the actors’ category association, will be awarded. Final voting for the Oscars will begin on March 2.
