There’s merely no stopping “Oppenheimer.”

On Sunday night time, the Producers Guild of America gave its prime movie award to Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster biopic concerning the father of the atomic bomb, finishing a clear sweep of main trade prizes that implies “Oppenheimer” will cruise to a best-picture victory on the Oscars subsequent month.

“We’ve by no means received this earlier than,” Nolan famous in his acceptance speech, although the PGA had beforehand nominated his movies “Dunkirk,” “Inception” and “The Darkish Knight.” Nolan, who produced the movie with Emma Thomas, his spouse, and Charles Roven, continued, “Each time we discovered ourselves invited into this room, we felt such help for no matter leaps we’ve taken or no matter dangers we’ve taken from a bunch of people that perceive how tough it’s to get something made.”

The PGA Awards are sometimes thought of a dry run for the Oscars’ finest image race for the reason that guild shares important member overlap with the academy and makes use of the identical preferential poll to choose its winner. (This yr the PGA nominees matched precisely the Oscar best-picture listing.) Since 2009, when each teams expanded the variety of best-film nominees from 5, the PGA winner has repeated on the Oscars all however 3 times.

Can “Oppenheimer” be beat?
