From TheWrap:

The Best Picture race is wide open now, but the PGA could change everything when it gives out its awards

Sorry, Oscar watchers. It’s mid-January, and we don’t know much in the most wide-open awards race in years.

But don’t worry: By the end of the week, we will.

That’s because Saturday is the Producers Guild Awards, the most reliable predictor of Oscar success. This year in particular, it’s the one event that that should tell us, after five months of film festivals, screenings, Q&As, campaign ads, critics’ awards, guild nominations and awards shows, the real frontrunner for Best Picture.

At the moment, that trophy could conceivably go to "Spotlight,” "The Revenant,” "The Big Short” or "Mad Max: Fury Road.” One of those will likely win the top honor from the PGA, the only one of the major guilds that has a de facto 10-film Best Picture category, and the only one that counts its votes using the Academy’s preferential system.
