Art Directors Guild Announces 2011 Nominees

The Art Directors Guild (ADG) has announced the nominations for their 16th Annual Excellence in Production Design Awards.

Across three different categories – contemporary, period and fantasy – the ADG recognized the expected likes of "The Artist," "Hugo," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2" as well as some surprises (mostly care of the contemporary category) in "Bridesmaids," "Drive" and "The Descendants."

Films missing the cut included "War Horse," "Jane Eyre," "A Dangerous Method," "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," "W.E." and "The Tree of Life" (though all competed in the very crowded "period" category).

The ceremony announcing winners will take place Saturday, February 4, 2012 at the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills with Paula Poundstone serving as host for the third consecutive year.

Captain America: nice choice. At first I was raising my eyebrows over Bridesmaids being included, but remembered the bridal shop scene.

Stephan

The Tree of life should have been on this list, some of the contemporary choices are questionable also

Christian

Period Film: The Artist
Fantasy Film: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt.2
Contemporary Film: Drive
Those are just my guesses, but I would be surprised if I was wrong. It seems pretty predictable.

Jade

It's too bad "Jane Eyre" didn't make the cut. I thought it was mesmerizing.

This must be a joke. For IMMORTALS not to be here for DESIGN is a travesty. We are talking design here.The film is visually a masterpiece.

Jack

Drive is best film of the year

Moira

I'm a fan of The girl with the dragon tatoo and Drive!
