We just love hearing our favorite actors and actresses explaining why they got into the business!
Aww, we just love tradition!
So, what was YOUR favorite I'm An Actor speech?
Woo-hoo! Another list, LOLz!!
The Producers Guild of America just unveiled their 2013 nominees for best producers in the biz and we are super stoked to share it with you!
Is it because we're rooting for our fave producers to win a PGA Award?
To be honest, not even the world's top scientists understand EXACTLY what a film/TV producer does — though we suspect it involves writing checks, cashing checks, and lots of screaming.
We care because these lists are a fairly accurate precursor to which actors and movies will garner the most Oscar consideration!
And, judging by this PGA list, we could be in for several shocking Academy Award snubs when their list of nominees goes public next week!
Critical darlings like Moonrise Kingdom and Life of Pie, for example, are getting nods over record-breaking blockbusters like The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises!!
Of course, we won't know for sure what Oscar and his pals will decide until January 10th!
