Skyfall, the 23rd offering in the Bond franchise, has been nominated as one of the ten best films at the 24th annual Producers Guild of America Awards. The nomination gives the film a massive boost to its chances of being nominated in the Best Film category at the Oscars.

The best film nominations at the annual PGA Awards often serves as a precursor to Oscar glory. Others nominated include Les Miserables, Django Unchained and Steven Spielberg’s epic Lincoln.

The winners at the PGA Awards will be announced on 26 January, with the much anticipated Oscar nominations announced on 10 January.

Skyfall has become a huge success, recently making $1billion internationally – making it the first Bond film to cross this mark. Directed by Sam Mendes, it is the third film to cross the $1billion in 2012. Avengers Assemble took the top spot with $1.51billion, with the moody The Dark Knight Rises coming second with $1.08billion.

The next instalment of the Bond franchise, Bond 24, is currently in development.
