Into the Spider-Verse Black Panther

At today's Producers Guild Awards, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse walked away with another major awards season win, while Black Panther walked away from the ceremony empty-handed.

Into the Spider-Verse won the Award for Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Picture, where it beat out a crowded field that included Incredibles 2 and Ralph Breaks the Internet. The Sony Pictures Animation film was produced by Avi Arad, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Amy Pascal and Christina Steinberg.

The PGA win is the latest in a series of awards season victories that's turned Into the Spider-Verse into a serious contender for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards.

While it's won a few high honors this awards season, Marvel Studios' Black Panther lost the PGA's top award, the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Theatrical Motion Picture, to Green Book, a controversial historical drama.

However, Marvel still received some major recognition at the ceremony. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige accepted the prestigious David O. Sleznick Achievement Award at the ceremony.

The only DC production nominated for an award, Teen Titans Go!, lost the Outstanding Children's Program to Sesame Street.
