la la landUPDATED – FEBRUARY 23, 2017 – FINAL PREDICTIONS – BAFTA gave a huge boost to “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” which pushed past “La La Land.”  Could that be a weakness for the musical?  There’s also been some support out there for “Arrival” and it could pull in a few surprises on the night.

  • Too bad Star Trek Beyond doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of getting in…

  • Greg

    Fantastic Beast and where to find them have AMAZING production design

  • Tobey

    Live by the night hasn’t been nominated for any art direction awards and is in 4th place while fantastic beasts has been nominated for critics choice and washington critics and is in 10th place? Doesn’t make any sense lol

    • Jonathan

      There’s still ADG Awards where it’ll surely be nominated for Best Period Production Design.

  • Alec Glass

    Yes I think Old Hollywood could make a play here but if it does I think it comes in the form of Hail, Caesar!

  • michaeldal65

    Silence for its Art Direction?!?! What, for a a bunch of phony looking huts and a neutral colour scheme? Florence Foster Jenkins and the appalling Batman vs. Superman were infinitely more attractive.

    • This takes the cake for most ignorant comment of the week. Dante Ferretti is perhaps the greatest living production design, and his work in Silence goes way beyond designing “huts”.

      • michaeldal65

        Can’t argue what a great designer Ferretti is but his work in the plodding SILENCE leaves much to be desired…

  • Bryce

    Arrival
    Fantastic Beasts
    Jackie
    La La Land
    Silence

    I have to go La La Land here.

  • jmlatinsir

    If La La Land doesn’t win this, it’d be miscarriage of cinematic justice.

  • Pokermask

    Here are my predictions for Best Production Design at the moment:
    Arrival (Patrice Vermette)
    Hacksaw Ridge (Barry Robison)
    Jackie (Jean Rabasse)
    The Jungle Book (Christopher Glass)
    La La Land (David Wasco)

    Top choice: La La Land

  • Alec Glass

    Actually Old Hollywood can make a play and the Art Directors guild HAVE bitten… for “Hail, Caesar!” which I’ve been saying is the spoiler for a nomination here all season long. Watch it happen!

  • Alec Glass

    umm seems like you didn’t notice that Passengers actually snuck by Jackie and Arrival got in? Talk about an absurd snub by the way, the set design of the white house in Jackie was astounding.

  • Jonathan

    Jackie missed being nominated, not Arrival.

  • Calvin Damon

    This is the third time you’ve updated this since the nominations were announced and yet you still have Jackie up there and talk about Arrival missing when it was the other way around

  • Alec Glass

    Clayton. Please. I’d be interested to know how you think Arrival fares on this category but alas I have no idea because for the third time this category has been updated (or at least labeled as updated) with Jackie in instead…

  • life is a state of mind

    La La Land’s sets and locations were awesome – it will win. In my book though, Guy Hendrix Dyas’s production design of Passengers was eye-popping excellence. I liked it better.

  • Calvin Damon

    I don’t think Fantastic Beasts is gonna win an Oscar if none of the Harry Potter movies could. This is between La La Land and Arrival, aka La La Land is winning this

  • Pablo

    La La Land’s production design was not nearly as powerful as the work done in Fantastic Beasts or Arrival. This is one prize that movie doesn’t deserve to win.
