The Screen Actors Guild may have favored "Inglourious Basterds" but the Producers Guild (a good indicator of Oscar success) opted for "The Hurt Locker." Here's the news from the Associated Press:

 "The Hurt Locker" scored the top film award from the Producers Guild of America, building new momentum for the Iraq war drama in the expanded Oscar race for best picture.

The film about a risk-taking bomb disposal technician beat out such celebrated nominees as "Avatar," "Inglourious Basterds" and "Up in the Air" Sunday night.

"The Hurt Locker" also bested the films "Star Trek," "District 9," "An Education," "Invictus," "Up" and "Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push' By Sapphire" at the Producer Guild Awards in Hollywood.
