'Deadpool', 'Moonlight', 'La La Land' Earn Producers Guild Award Nominationsby HaydnSpurrell
Deadpool's role in award season has been a surprise, to say the least, and possibly even to Ryan Reynolds. Could he have predicted that the character would make this kind of an impact, he might have been wearing his Deadpool costume to the ceremony's, instead of a plain-old suit.
Nevertheless, the film has seen nominations from the Golden Globes and the Writers Guild, and the latest nomination comes via the Producers Guild. The PGA gave nominations to the expected films such as La La Land and Moonlight.
While Deadpool isn't going to win any Best Picture awards, the nod is an interesting one, and might pave the way for films like, for example, this year's Logan also being thrown into consideration. Is it time for blockbusters that try something new to start getting some credit for their artistic merit?
