Producers Endorse Green Book
Could the man who made Dumb & Dumber and Kingpin be on his way to Oscar glory? Well the odds for Peter Farrelly significantly improved last night when the Producers Guild Of America named Green Book Best Film Of The Year.
“When you make Dumb and Dumber you never expect to get an award,” Farrelly said in his acceptance speech. “I don’t need awards. This is like Warren Buffett winning the lottery. I’m damn thankful.”
The PGA has tallied with the Oscar Best Picture 20 times out of the last 29 years, so Green Book is clearly now a favourite to win again next month.
Elsewhere the Guild anointed Spider-Man Into The Spider Verse the animation to beat, and named the wonderful Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’ Best Doc.
