| Zoom

LOS ANGELES (AP) - David O. Russell's corruption tale "American Hustle," Spike Jonze's digital romance "Her," and Steve McQueen's historic saga "12 Years a Slave" are among the motion picture nominees for the Producers Guild of America.

Ten films were announced as contenders on Thursday, including the Woody Allen comedy "Blue Jasmine," Somali pirate thriller "Captain Phillips," AIDS drama "Dallas Buyers Club," lost-in-space odyssey "Gravity," small-town comedy "Nebraska," making-of-"Mary Poppins" story "Saving Mr. Banks," and stockbroker feat "The Wolf of Wall Street."

The guild, a company of Hollywood producers, grants its 25th annual awards on Jan. 19. Winners of the top honor often go on to take the best-picture prize at the Academy Awards, held on March 2.
