AceShowbiz - "Green Book" is continuing its awards show streak after taking home the top prize at the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday night (January 19).

The film, which stars Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen, beat out "Black Panther", "BlacKkKlansman", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Crazy Rich Asians", "The Favourite", "A Quiet Place", "Roma", "A Star Is Born", and "Vice (2018)" to land the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

"You know, when you make (comedy) 'Dumb & Dumber', you don't ever expect to get an award," director Peter Farrelly said while he was accepting the award.

The movie about the relationship between African-American pianist Dr. Don Shirley and his white driver has already taken home Golden Globe Awards for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, Best Screenplay - Motion Picture, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for Ali, and now it is poised to pick up Oscars glory when the nominations are announced this week (begin January 21) - the PGAS and Academy Awards voters have agreed on the same Best Picture in the last 20 out of 29 years.

Meanwhile, "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" won the PGA award for Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures.

On the TV side, season 6 of "The Americans" took home the Norman Felton Award for Episodic Television, Drama, while season two of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" scored the Danny Thomas Award for Episodic Television, Comedy.

Season two of "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story" picked up the David L. Wolper Award for Limited Series Television and "Fahrenheit 451" scored the Streamed or Televised Motion Pictures honour.
