In 1990, the Producers Guild held the first-ever Golden Laurel Awards, which were renamed the Producers Guild Awards in 2002. Richard Zanuck and Lili Fini Zanuck took home the award for Best Produced Motion Picture for DRIVING MISS DAISY, establishing the Guild’s awards as a bellwether for the Oscars. Last year, the PGA awarded ARGO with its Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, marking the sixth consecutive year the Producers Guild has presaged the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ choice.
