Birdman secured the top prize at the 2015 Producers Guild Awards last night (January 24).
The Michael Keaton film triumphed over the likes of Boyhood and The Imitation Game to take home the Darryl F Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures.
Director Alejandro González Iñárritu accepted the award, saying: "On behalf of all of us, our only ambition was to make a risky and experimental exploration of the cinematic language, of an artist's complexity played by the incredible Michael Keaton.
"I feel humbled by this. All the films that are nominated have such an individual voice, the expression behind them - only the people who made them could have made them."
The Lego Movie picked up the animated feature award, beating Golden Globe winner How to Train Your Dragon 2.
AMC's Breaking Bad received the Norman Felton Award, given to the top drama series. It beat shows including Game of Thrones and True Detective.
Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White, joked: "You only know that your show is a big hit when the location signs are stolen".
FX's Fargo won the David L Wolper Award for longform TV, and Netflix series Orange Is the New Black was crowned best comedy series.
Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner's Plan B Entertainment film company received the Visionary Award, while Mark Gordon - producer of Criminal Minds, Grey's Anatomy and Ray Donovan - was given the Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television.
