Great news: Bridesmaids were nominated for the 2012 Producers Guild Awards yesterday! The awards, which go to TV and film producers, often help forecast the Oscar nominees and winners.
The fact that Kristen Wiig’s Bridesmaids made the list is an indication that the comedy may be in the running for some major nominations when the Oscars roll around. Fingers crossed! Huge congrats to the movie’s producers Judd Apatow, Barry Mendel and Clayton Townsend for the great honor.
See the complete list of nominees at the Producers Guild website. The winners will be announced on January 21, 2012 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
