Another “win” for HTTYD!

The Producers Guild has today announced their nominees for the best of 2010.  No real surprises that I can see, although others may disagree. The good news for How to Train Your Dragon, is that not only was it one of the three films nominated in the Animated Category:

The Award for Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures Nominees:

but as predicted, Toy Story 3 was also nominated in the much larger overall "best film" category:

The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures Nominees:

  • 127 Hours – Producers: Danny Boyle, Christian Colson
  • Black Swan – Producers: Scott Franklin, Mike Medavoy, Brian Oliver
  • Inception – Producers: Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas
  • The Fighter – Producers: David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman, Mark Wahlberg
  • The Kids Are All Right – Producers: Gary Gilbert, Jeffrey Levy-Hinte, Celine Rattray
  • The King’s Speech – Producers: Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Gareth Unwin
  • The Social Network – Producers: Dana Brunetti, Ceán Chaffin, Michael De Luca, Scott Rudin
  • The Town – Producers: Basil Iwanyk, Graham King
  • Toy Story 3 – Producer: Darla K. Anderson
  • True Grit – Producers: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen, Scott Rudin

Why is this good news for HTTYD you ask?  Because the Producer’s Guild is usually a very good barometer of the Academy Award nominations for Best Picture and I still maintain that if Toy Story 3 is nominated in that category, even though it will surely be nominated in the Animated Feature category as well, then HTTYD stands a (marginally) better chance of winning the former. 

HTTYD would still be a long-shot, but every little bit helps right?

Oh, and while we’re on the subject, can I just say how pleased I am with the overall list?  (Of course I can, it’s my blog…)

For your trouble…
