Tie Game At Last Night’s PGA Awards

This award season is getting crazy!

There are so many movie award presentations this time of year, it can be hard to tell them apart. The PGAAs however, are special. Not just because of their strict, button-down attitude, but because it is the only movie award given exclusively by professional golfers. If you want goofy nonsense, go watch the WWE Movie Awards. If you want the real deal, watch the PGAAs.

But last night something unprecedented happened. Both Gravity and 12 Years a Slave won best picture (which, in typically erudite golfer parlance, is called "The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures"). Never before have two films tied for an award like this.

The PGA decided to solve this dilemma the only way they knew how, by having a put-off. The contest was quite close, but in the end 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen won the trophy. Unfortunately, he then embarked on a victorious rant during which he called Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron a "sorry receiver" and warned everyone else not to "open [their] mouth about the best."

Immediately following this, the golfers stripped McQueen of the award and gave it to Cuaron instead. Many award prognosticators fear this is but a preview of what we can expect from this year's Academy Award ceremony.
