Art Directors Guild Announces Nominees

Art Directors Guild Announces Nominees

The Art Directors Guild has announced the nominations for their annual awards, with Oscar frontrunners like “Avatar,” “Up In The Air,” “The Hurt Locker” and “Inglourious Basterds” all in the mix.

Notable snubs included John Myhre and Gordon Sim’s work on “Nine,” which had been considered a good bet despite the film’s poor reception, as well as less surprising omissions like “The Last Station,” “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” “Bright Star,” “The Young Victoria,” and “The Road.” Also of note is “The Lovely Bones”‘s strange inclusion in the “contemporary” category and not “period” or “fantasy,” either of which would have made much more sense.

Last year, “The Dark Knight,” “Slumdog Millionaire” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” won in each of their respective categories.

The full list of this year’s nominations are below.

“A Serious Man,” production, designer, Jess Gonchor
