Globes winners overlooked in key Oscars indicator
Tue, Jan 15, 2008

LOS ANGELES - NEWLY crowned Golden Globes best picture winners 'Atonement' and 'Sweeney Todd' were the notable absentees on Monday as nominees for the Producers Guild of America Awards were unveiled.

The PGA Awards, viewed as an important indicator of likely best picture contenders at the Oscars, handed nods to 'The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,' 'Juno,' "Michael Clayton,' "No Country for Old Men' and 'There Will Be Blood.'

The PGA will hand out its annual awards on Feb 2, three weeks before the Academy Awards take place in Hollywood on Feb 24.

The awards are regarded as as Oscars form guide because many PGA members are voters at the Oscars.

The omission of British period drama 'Atonement,' which won best picture at Sunday's Golden Globes, and 'Sweeney Todd,' which took best musical, will fuel speculation that the two may be overlooked for the Oscars.
