  • 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!
