In 1990 the PGA held the first-ever Golden Laurel Awards, which were renamed the Producers Guild Awards in 2002. Richard Zanuck and Lili Fini Zanuck took home the award for Best Produced Motion Picture for DRIVING MISS DAISY, establishing the Guild’s awards as a bellwether for the Oscars. Last year, the PGA awarded THE KING’S SPEECH with its Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures, marking the fourth consecutive year the Producers Guild has presaged the The Academy of Motion Picture’s choice.
