Art Directors Guild Awards

Warner Bros. has a good night.

“The Great Gatsby,” “Gravity” and “Her” won the top film awards from the Art Directors Guild on Saturday night, an unsurprising outcome since all three films are among the Oscar nominees in the production-design category.

For its Art Directors Guild Excellence in Production Design Awards, the ADG splits its film categories into separate period-film, fantasy-film and contemporary-film categories. “Gatsby” was named tops in the period category, “Gravity” in fantasy and “Her” in contemporary.

The results gave Warner Bros. a sweep of the ADG film awards, one night after Sony enjoyed its own two-film sweep at the ACE Eddie Awards, which were held in the same room, the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. ...

What's interesting to me is both Gatsby and Gravity are heavily CG (buh-bye actual sets so long crafts people) and the Sandra Bullock picture is 80% animated feature.

Brave new world.

How sad that Frozen wasn't even considered for nomination. The work in the film is quite amazing, and David Wormesly, Mike Giamo, Lisa Keene, and the entire crew deserve GOBS of awards for such a remarkably beautiful film.
