LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Slumdog Millionaire" has scored the top award from the Producers Guild of America in yet another accolade for the rags-to-riches drama about a game-show contestant from the slums of Mumbai.
Producer Christian Colson was honored with the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award at the ceremony held Saturday night at the Hollywood Palladium, the latest Hollywood kudofest in the run-up to the Academy Awards next month.
"Slumdog Millionaire," directed by Briton Danny Boyle and starring a cast of unknowns, swept up four Golden Globe awards earlier this month.
The film is a leading contender in the Oscar race for best picture. It's also up for best director and adapted screenplay.
