Alejandro González Iñárritu is flying high once again…
The 51-year-old Mexican filmmaker’s dark comedy Birdman took home the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures at the 26th annual PGA Awards in Los Angele on Sunday.
The recognition from the Producers Guild of America places the González Iñárritu-helmed film squarely in the frontrunner category for the Best Picture Academy Award.
Since 1989, those theatrical films taking the Darryl F. Zanuck award for best producer have a 75% chance of winning the top prize at the Oscars.
It’s González Iñárritu’s first win in two tries. In 2007, he received a PGA Award nod for Babel, which won Best Picture – Drama at the 2007 Golden Globes and was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars.
