Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the 85th Academy Awards through February 24th, when the winners are announced.
Here’s our take on best production design, which seems like a three way race between the theatrical sets of “Anna Karenina” and “Les Misersables,” and the extensive CGI of “Life of Pi.” Given they have gone way of more computer-generated imagery as of late, we’ll say “Pi.”
