Producers Guild nominations — Is this the Oscar best picture list?

Could be.

It doesn’t have “Into the Woods” or “Selma” on it, but today’s PGA nominations certainly feel like the best pictures to me.

There are our front-runners, “Boyhood” and “Birdman” and “Whiplash” are here.  So is “Gone Girl” (“Selma” was a little better), “The Theory of Everything,” “The Imitation Game,” “American Sniper,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and a mild surprise, “Nightcrawler.”

That’s as good a ten best as any. Conventional, with big unconventional exceptions — “Birdman,” “Boyhood,” “Grand Budapest,” Nightcrawler.”

The usual Clint Eastwood nomination is here, both the more touted (and inferior) Brit bio pics (I think “Theory of Everything” is better) are nominated. oscars

Best animated PGA nominations went to “The Boxtrolls,” “The Book of Life”, “Big Hero Six”, “The Lego Movie” and (?!) “How to Train Your Dragon 2.”
