The Art Directors Guild (ADG, IATSE Local 800) has announced nominations for its 22nd Annual Excellence in Production Design Awards in theatrical motion pictures, television, commercials, music videos and, for the first time, animation features. This first-ever batch of animated films includes “Coco,” “Cars 3,” “Despicable Me 3,” “The LEGO Batman Movie,” and “Loving Vincent.”

As is their practice, the guild divides up feature film nods between period film, fantasy film, contemporary film, and (now) animated film. Standout nominees this year include “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Wonder Woman,” “Dunkirk,” and “Blade Runner 2049.” On the television side, series like “Game of Thrones,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Stranger Things,” and “Big Little Lies” were also nominated.

Winners will be honored at the Awards Gala on Saturday, January 27, 2018, in the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland. Today’s announcement was made by Art Directors Guild President Nelson Coates, ADG, and Awards Producers Thomas Walsh, ADG, and Thomas Wilkins, ADG. Check out the full list of nominees below.
