The Art Directors Guild (ADG) announced the winners of the 26th Annual Excellence in Production Design Awards on Saturday night.
Yvette Nicole Brown hosted the ceremony on Saturday night at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown. Much like the ACE Eddie Awards, there were no shortage of comments about the Academy’s fakakta decision to not air all 23 awards live. Both Jane Campion and Denis Villeneuve used their honors to speak out against the decision. Villeneuve was honored with the William Cameron Menzies Award while Cameron was presented with the Cinematic Imagery Award.
If I had to guess, Nightmare Alley or Dune will be taking home the Oscar for Best Production Design on March 27.
