Producers Guild of America opt for The Aviator



Story by: Jack Foley

MARTIN Scorsese's Howard Hughes biopic, The Aviator, has won the Producers' Guild of America's top award.

Film-makers Michael Mann and Graham King were jointly named producers of the year for the movie, which dramatically heightens its chances of Oscar success.

In 11 out of the past 15 years, the Guild has honoured films that went on to win best picture at February's showpiece event.

And The Aviator has already triumphed at the Golden Globes, where it was named best picture and its star, Leonardo DiCaprio, was named best actor.

Another movie winner was Hotel Rwanda, which took the award for tackling social issues.

The film tells the true story of a hotel manager who saved people from the Rwandan genocide of 1994.

It shared the award with Innocent Voices, a fictional account of a boy's experience during the Salvadoran civil war.

On TV, Mike Nichols' critically-acclaimed Angels in America, starring Al Pacino and Meryl Streep, won the award for best TV mini-series, while Curb Your Enthusiasm was best comedy series.

The Sopranos was named best episodic drama, while The Ellen DeGeneres Show took the guild's variety television award at the Los Angeles ceremony.
