Oscars 2017: ADG Awards

They announced the Art Directors Guild awards last night. So we’ll have a little bit of insight into Best Production Design.

As a reminder, the BFCA Award went to The Shape of Water. The Oscar category is Beauty and the Beast, Blade Runner 2049, Darkest Hour Dunkirk and The Shape of Water and BAFTA has the same exact category So this should really be enlightening for how Production Design is likely to go. All of them were nominated at ADG.

The Period winner was The Shape of Water.

The Fantasy winner was Blade Runner 2049.

The Contemporary winner was Logan.

They also included an Animated category, which Coco of course won.

With two wins already and a likely BAFTA win coming, this seems to be The Shape of Water’s category to lose. War movies never get nominated at the Oscars, let alone win, so I doubt Dunkirk can jump up and win. Darkest Hour needs a BAFTA win to feel like its got any chance. Beauty and the Beast, I guess, could possibly win, but that feels like a longshot without any sort of real support. Blade Runner could win the BAFTA and also make a play for it, but with 13 nominations, Shape of Water certainly seems like a favorite. So we’ll see if anything changes between now and BAFTA.
