Art Directors Guild nods right on the 'Button'


Production designers on "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "The Dark Knight" and "Slumdog Millionaire" drew honors Saturday in feature-film categories of the Art Directors Guild Awards.

The ADG held its annual awards gala at the Beverly Hilton, presenting awards in film, television and commercial categories.

"Button" was selected for best production design in a period film, "Knight" for a fantasy pic and "Slumdog" for a contemporary movie.

George Lucas received an honorary award for outstanding contributions to cinematic imagery, and Paul Sylbert ("The Prince of Tides") received lifetime-achievement laurels. Bryan Cranston, star of the AMC series "Breaking Bad," hosted the ceremony. (partialdiff)
