'Simpsons' characters to host ADG Awards


"Eex-cell-ennnt," as "The Simpsons" Mr. Burns would say. Actor Harry Shearer, the voice of Burns and many other "Simpsons" characters, will host the 12th annual Art Directors Guild Awards ceremony Feb. 16 at the Beverly Hilton.

Eight ADG awards for excellence in production design will be handed out in TV, film and commercials categories, along with a lifetime achievement award to production designer Stuart Craig and a cinematic imagery award to Ray Harryhausen. Five legendary production designers will also be inducted into the ADG Hall of Fame that evening.
