The Producers Guild Awards, which tees up possible winners for the Oscar Best Picture category, announced their awards which were held on January 19.

Peter Farrelly’s dramedy, Green Book, which stars Viggo Mortenson and Mahershala Ali, took home the Daryl F. Zanuck Award for Theatrical Motion Pictures which, excluding the recent back-to-back discrepancies with The Big Short and La La Land, has predicted most of the Best Picture winners at the Oscars.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? took home the documentary trophy and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won the animation category. Won’t You Be My Neighbor is pretty much considered the front-runner for the Oscars Best Documentary winner. Although the critically-acclaimed Into the Spider-Verse looks like a shoo-in to win, can anything really beat The Mouse House and Pixar with Incredibles 2?

This Producer’s Guild Award win caps off Green Book‘s streak of wins through the film award circuit, but will still have to face off against other probable nominees BlacKkKlansman and A Star is Born.
