Producing social worth: Guild finds value in 'Milk'

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 10-104Awards season may still be a few months away, but Milk has already managed to pull in some honors. The film's most recent prize? Well, just today it was announced that the Harvey biopic has won the Producers Guild of America's Stanley Kramer Award, which honors pictures taking on provocative social issues:

So give it up, producers of High School Musical 3. The body had spoken, determining that weighing the life and senseless death of one of the nation's first openly gay politicians holds more social relevancy than the story of whether or not Troy and Gabriella will be separated post-graduation from East High. That must burn, huh?

Now, it remains to be seen if Milk will be able to bag some of the biggies, like a Golden Globe, SAG Award, and Oscar. But it's already nice to know that Harvey's being recognized for his role in keeping modern-day Oscars who don't objectify a woman's golden globes from being branded with a word that rhymes with SAG.
