    The Producers Guild of America couldn't decide between Gravity and 12 Years a Slave when it came to doling out the top honor at its awards show Sunday night.

    The two drama flicks tied for the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures at the Producers Guild Awards, which generally sets the tone for the Oscars.

    Gravity and 12 Years a Slave not only beat out frontrunner American Hustle at the event, but the tie also made the lead-up to the Academy Awards a little more interesting, considering the PGAs Best Picture has been the same as the Oscars' Best Picture winner for the last six years.

    This was also the first tie the PGAs have ever had in it's 25-year history.
