All Hail to Producers at PGAs

The movie and television stars stepped aside on Sunday night and allowed the spotlight to shine on the producers at the Producers Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles. Ron Howard admitted "it's always kind of a mystery what producers do," so he took the opportunity to explain their integral contributions to these works of art.

His friend Brian Grazer said, "If you can create the idea, part of the creation of it, that's a virtue, but mostly it's about being creatively and fiscally responsible and being able to sustain that interest until the very end." Ron jokingly added, "It's also being the boss; the one guy who can fire the director."

Although 'Avatar' fell short of taking home the PGA for Producer of the Year in Theatrical Motion Pictures, James Cameron was still enthusiastic about his film's box office success. He said, "It's so amazing because we expected the film to be commercial, but not anything like this. There was so much sort of negative buzz before the movie about blue characters and Smurfs and all that stuff, that after a while you start to take it to heart, so this is all a big pleasant surprise." The award instead went to 'Hurt Locker.'
