"Wonder Woman" may have just taken a big step toward an Oscar nod after scoring a movie nomination at the 29th annual Producers Guild of America Awards. The Patty Jenkins-directed DC superhero film is vying for the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, the guild announced on Friday, January 5.
