Awards Watch: NAACP, PGA

In news that should surprise no one, the inspirational The Great Debaters leads the nominees for this year's NAACP Image Awards with eight nominations, including two for director/star Denzel Washington (likes he needs anymore ... he's got 14 of 'em) and Outstanding Motion Picture. Joining it in the latter category is I Am Legend, Talk To Me, Why Did I Get Married? and another Denzel picture, American Gangster.

Debaters will also be honored with the Stanley Kramer Award from the Producers Guild of America, who also announced their nominations today. No big surprises in their finalists -- The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Juno, Michael Clayton, No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood. The way things are going, these five titles could very well be the names read when the Oscar nominations are announced a week from tomorrow.

See the comments section below for the full nominees for both the PGA (awards date: February 2) and the NAACP (awards date: February 14, broadcast live on Fox).
