Art Directors Guild Sets 2020 Awards Date
The Art Directors Guild (IATSE Local 800) will hold its 24th annual Excellence in Production Design Awards on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020, roughly one week before the Academy Awards, which have been moved up several weeks to Feb. 9.
This places the ADG Awards on the same weekend as the BAFTAs, which will be held Feb. 2 in London. On Tuesday, American Cinema Editors announced that its Eddie Awards will be held Jan. 17, and it changed its TV category eligibility period to Jan. 1-Nov. 1 of this year to reflect the shorter schedule.
The ADG gala will return to the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown, a venue that it used for the first time earlier this year.
