BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Hollywood producer Scott Rudin has been named producer of the year by the Producers Guild of America for his work on "No Country for Old Men."

Rudin was presented with the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award this weekend at a gala event in Beverly Hills, Calif. He shared the cinematic honor with the film's directors, Joel and Ethan Coen, The Hollywood Reporter said Sunday.

The Coen brothers served as producers on the 2007 film, in addition to earning directorial and writing credits.

During Saturday's annual awards dinner, producers of "The Sopranos" took home the award for best production on a TV drama, while "30 Rock" producers were recognized for top TV comedy series.

The Reporter said the film "Ratatouille" earned its director, Brad Lewis, kudos for best production in an animated film.

Meanwhile, "Fahrenheit 9-11" director Michael Moore, along with producer Meghan O'Hara, were presented with the PGA award for top documentary film production for "Sicko."
