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.
