PGA Awards Winners: Everything Everywhere All at Once Wins Top Prize, Possibly Sealing Its Oscar Fate

The 2023 PGA Awards took place Saturday night at the Beverly Hilton, where Everything Everywhere All at Once won the guild’s top prize, defeating Top Gun: Maverick and The Fabelmans to shore up its frontrunner status heading into the start of Oscar voting.

Many pundits believe the PGA is a great predictor of the Academy Award for Best Picture, as seven of the last 10 PGA winners went on to win that Oscar. But the truth is that while the PGA Award is certainly an indicator, 30 percent isn’t exactly an insignificant margin of error. Then again, EEAAO has been winning industry awards all season, and a Best Ensemble win at the SAG Awards would seem to seal its hallowed fate.

Of course, it should be noted that the German production of All Quiet on the Western Front wasn’t nominated by the PGA or SAG due to eligibility reasons, and it remains a distinct possibility, albeit a dark horse, as the Academy Awards draw near.

Leaving the Oscars out of it, the PGA Awards were the most professional event I’ve attended, as the press was, for once, able to actually hear all of the night’s speeches, and there were some good ones, from Tom Cruise to Mindy Kaling.

The night’s early winners included Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio and a pair of HBO programs — The White Lotus, and Last Week Tonight With John Oliver. HBO wasn’t the only division of Warner Bros. Discovery to take home two trophies, as CNN won for Navalny and Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy. FX and Hulu each won an award as well thanks to The Bear and The Dropout, both of which were surprise winners in the eyes of some pundits.

B.J. Novak delivered a wonderful tribute to Kaling before handing her the Norman Lear Award, after which Kaling gave a heartfelt acceptance speech. Elsewhere, Ron Howard gave the Milestone Award to Warner Bros. film bosses Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy, who recently worked with the director on Thirteen Lives.
