Borat crashes Producers Guild of America lineup!

After making a surprise appearance at last month's Writers Guild of America award nominations, then winning the Golden Globe for Best Musical or Comedy, the awards love has yet to let up for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. Today, an even more surprising appearance as it leaps past Da 5 Bloods, The Father and News of the World to crack the Best Picture top ten from the Producers Guild of America. Voters' choices in the Animation and (previously announced) Documentary categories weren't nearly as shocking, but if this indication that Borat is stronger with industry groups than we'd thought might be misleading for the famously comedy-averse Academy, it's worrying news for the movies it beat. Winners will be announced on the 24th of March.
