Producer Thomas Langmann received the award handed out at the Beverly Hilton by the Producers Guild of America, as “The Artist” beat out George Clooney’s family drama and another Oscar favorite, “The Descendants.”
“The Artist” won best musical or comedy at Sunday’s Golden Globes and “The Descendants” won best drama along with a best actor nod for Clooney, making the movies likely rivals for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
The other nominees in the movie category were “War Horse,” “The Help,” “Bridesmaids,” “Hugo,” “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” “Midnight in Paris,” “Moneyball” and another Clooney movie, “The Ides of March.”
Along with honors from other Hollywood professional groups such as actors, directors and writers guilds, the producer prizes have become part of the preseason sorting out contenders for the Oscars, whose nominations come out Jan. 24.
A team of seven producers including Martin Scorcese received the award for “Boardwalk Empire,” which also beat out Showtime’s “Dexter,” CBS’s “The Good Wife,” and another HBO series, “Game of Thrones.”
Other winners at the PGA awards include PBS’s “Downton Abbey” for long-form television, “The Adventures of Tintin” for animated film, “Beats, Rhymes & Life” for movie documentary and “The Colbert Report” for talk and live entertainment shows.
