Tape “Everything Everywhere All at Once”of Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinertreceived this Saturday the award for best film in the 34th edition of the Producers Guild Awards (PGA).
The film by the directors known colloquially as “Los Daniels” defeated strong opponents such as “The Fabelmans” by Steven Spielberg, “Tár” by Todd Field, and “The Banshees of Inisherin” by Martin McDonagh, in these awards that usually work as a thermometer for the Oscars.
A year ago the film “CODA” once again demonstrated the power of the PGA as indicators of the productions that can win the golden statuette for best film.
And in the last 14 years only three films (“The Big Short,” “La La Land” and “1917”) have altered the correlation between PGA winners and Hollywood Academy Award winners.
The recognition for “Everything Everywhere All at Once”, from the production house A24, adds to his recent triumph at awards such as the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards.
The story follows the challenge faced by a middle-aged woman who is forced to fight across confusing multiverses to save her world, while chaotically experiencing all the directions her life could have taken.
The award-winning Netflix film “Pinocchio,” from director Guillermo del Toro, won best animated film to A24’s “Marcel the Shell with Shoes On,” DreamWorks Animation’s “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish,” Illumination’s “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” and Pixar’s “Turning Red.”
The “stop-motion” of the Mexican was also crowned tonight as the favorite of the Annie Awards, the awards of the animated industry where it received five recognitions.
In the film category for best documentary won “Navalny”, by Daniel Roher for CNN and Warner Bros., which portrays the assassination attempt on Russian opposition leader and former presidential candidate Alexei Navalni.
As for television, HBO’s “The White Lotus”won in the category of best dramatic series, “The Bear” from FXwas crowned as best comedy, and “The Dropout” it was named best limited series.
While the award for the best non-fiction production for the small screen went to “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy”from CNN, and “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls”from Amazon Prime Video, took the award for best competitive show on television.
The award for best television movie went to “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story”, from The Roku Channel, and the award for best live television program or “talk show” went to “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”, from HBO.
