Art Directors Guild Announces Nominations

Warner Brothers Pictures

"The King's Speech," "Inception," "The Social Network" were nominated in all three categories.

Such familiar awards contenders as The King’s Speech, True Grit, Inception and The Social Network are among the nominees for the the Art Directors Guild’s 15th annual Excellence in Production Design Awards, which were announced Wednesday morning.

The ADG recognizes films in three categories.

Grit production designer Jess Gonchor and Speech’s Eve Stewart are nominated in the period film category along with Dante Ferretti for Shutter Island, Arthur Max for Robin Hood and Geoffrey Kirkland for Get Low.

In the fantasy film category, Inception’s Guy Hendrix Dyas will compete with Robert Stromberg for Alice in Wonderland, Stuart Craig for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Darren Gilford for Tron: Legacy and Barry Robison for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

The final category, contemporary film, includes nominees Donald Graham Burt for Network, Therese DePrez for Black Swan, Judy Becker for The Fighter, Sharon Seymour for The Town and Suttirat Larlab for 127 Hours.

Moving on to television, the ADG nominated episodes of Mad Men, True Blood, The Tudors, 24 and Glee in its single camera TV series category. Dan Bishop, who won last year in the category, was nominated this year for the “Public Relations” episode of Mad Men.

Two shows were nominated for TV movie or mini-series: Secrets in the Wall and Revenge of the Bridesmaids.

In the half-hour single-camera TV series category the nominees are episodes of Modern Family, 30 Rock, Outsourced, United States of Tara and Community.

In the category of multi-camera, variety or unscripted series, the nominees are the Betty White/Jay.Z episode of Saturday Night Live, the first episode of Conan and episodes of How I Met Your Mother, Hell’s Kitchen and Two and a Half Men.

In the final TV category of awards, music or game shows, the nominees consist of the 82nd Annual Academy Awards, the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, the 62nd Prime Time Emmy Awards, the 67th Golden Globe Awards and Super Bowl XLIV.

In the ADG’s final category, which covers commercials and music videos, the nominees include commercials for milk, Farmers Insurance, Capital One, Ford Fiesta and Dos Equis.

The ADG previously announced that it will present its Lifetime Achievement Award to production and costume designer Patricia Norris. Additionally, it will induct Alexander Golitzen, Albert Heschong and Eugene Lourie into its Hall of Fame.

The ADG’s Cinematic Imagery Award will be presented to Syd Dutton and Bill Taylor, long-time visual effects artists from Illusion Arts. Filmmaker Cindy Peters will present a short video about the diverse tasks performed by art department craftpersons, featuring interviews with current and aspiring members of ADG.

The award winners will be announced Feb. 5 at a black-tie dinner, hosted by Paula Poundstone, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The theme of this year’s awards show is “Designs on Film,” a tribute to Cathy Whitlock’s new HarperCollins book that traces 100 years of Hollywood art direction. ADG Council president Tom Walsh will introduce the event.
