Apple’s CODA was the big winner at the Producers Guild Awards (PGA), which were held Saturday night at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Century City.

Season 3 of HBO’s Succession and Season 2 of Apple’s Ted Lasso were named the top Drama and top Comedy, respectively, while Disney’s Encanto took home the top prize for animated features.

Elsewhere, RuPaul’s Drag Race was named the best Game/Competition series and HBO’s Last Week Tonight With John Oliver won the award for live entertainment/talk show.

With its win at the PGA Awards and its win for Best Ensemble at the SAG Awards, CODA now has to be considered the frontrunner to win Best Picture at the Academy over The Power of the Dog, even though it managed only three Oscar nominations to Dog‘s 12 nods.
