Favoring the output of studio specialty divisions and indies, the Producers Guild of America nominated
for its best picture award Focus Features’ “Brokeback Mountain,” United Artists and Sony Pictures
Classics’ “Capote,” Lionsgate’s “Crash,” Warner Independent Pictures’ “Good Night, and Good Luck” and
20th Century Fox’s “Walk the Line.” The producers org has traditionally been the friendliest
guild to big-budgeted studio fare, but this year, the top-budgeted pic receiving a PGA nom is “Walk the Line,” which was made for a relatively moderate $29 million.
