Peer Pressure


Not to be outdone by those press-hogging Oscars, the Producers Guild of America announced today that the annual PGA Awards would also be expanding its nominee field to 10. The crop is usually seen as a major Oscar harbinger, and though the move brings it more in line with those awards, I can't help but think the PGAs missed a big opportunity, since staying at five nominees could have given it unusual cachet for predicting the Best Picture upper tier. Nominations will be announced January 5.
