Late last year, Dana Brunetti had a public battle with the Producers Guild when the organization denied him a Producers Mark on the sequel Fifty Shades Darker. Striking out with a "vengeance," Brunetti posted a series of statements on Instagram in which he slammed the guild as a "joke" for "screwing me over," adding that the org's "purpose is to protect me, yet continually you have done the opposite and caused me grief and stress."
Brunetti eventually received the mark after he won a decision on appeal, and when the decision came down he dubbed it a victory. "I've won battle, but not the war. Hopefully more to come," he said at the time. And there was more on Jan. 28 at the annual PGA Awards inside the Beverly Hilton.
There was Brunetti, clad in a sharp-looking tuxedo and joined by girlfriend Alexandra Pakzad, looking ready to shake hands and make nice. "I had my issues with the PGA, but I'm putting on a good face and I'm here to make amends," he told The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet before heading in to the show. "Hopefully they will start to hear guys like me and change the way they operate.
