Tonight the Producers Guild Of America stamped Guillermo Del Toro's drama "The Shape Of Water" with the credential of Best Picture Oscar front-runner, awarding it the Darryl F. Zanuck Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures Award.  The PGA Award-winning feature film is a generally reliable indicator of the Best Picture Oscar winner.

"The Shape Of Water" is set in the 1960s in Baltimore and features a mute worker (Sally Hawkins) at a secure government industrial plant who is fascinated by an otherworldly amphibious creature (Doug Jones).  The film also stars Octavia Spencer, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Michael Shannon.

Mr. Del Toro has had a good awards season so far.  This month he won the Golden Globe for Best Director.  He was also nominated Best Director by the BAFTAs, which nominated "The Shape Of Water" for Best Film.  Mr. Del Toro was also nominated Best Director by the Directors' Guild Of America. 

The hot streak for Mr. Del Toro and his film is expected to continue on Tuesday at the early morning announcement of the Academy Awards nominations.
