Producers Guild Narrows the Best Picture Field — “Borat” is a contender?

Um, okay.

“Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm” is a fine fun semi-scripted farce. Ripped Rudy a new one. But an Oscar contender?

No “News of the World” or “Another Round” or “The Father” or “emma.” Or “David Copperfield” or…what else do you see as missing?

“Mank” and “One Night in Miami” I wasn’t nuts about, but they at least have the scope and veneer of “Oscar contender” about them.

This might be your Best Picture field, but as all bets are off this Oscar season, that’s less likely than usual. No way in Hell a town full of actors will be backing a movie with only a couple of SAG members in it.
