Awards Watch: PGA, Online Critics Nominations

Two disparate groups announced their nominations for their respective kudos-fests today. First up, the Producers Guild of America named what could be the final five come Oscar time: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Dark Knight, Frost/Nixon, Slumdog Millionaire and Milk. The latter is already a winner with the PGA, having already been awarded the prestigious Stanley Kramer Award from the group, which is bestowed upon films "taking on provocative social issues". The awards will be handed out January 24.

The nominations for the Online Film Critics Society Awards have finally leaked online (ironically, they are not listed on the group's own website as of yet), with WALL-E and The Wrestler joining Benjamin Button, Dark Knight and Slumdog in their Best Picture line-up. Not sure why they even bothered with nominations though, as their awards will be announced this Thursday, January 8.

See the comments section below for a quick look at all the PGA's film nominees and as many of the OFCS nominees as has been revealed at the time of this posting.
