It’s not as glamorous as the Golden Globes, the SAGs or even the Critics Choice Movie Awards, but the Art Directors Guild Awards are important in their own right. Not only do they honor those who make the movies and television programs we watch beautiful to look at it, but knowing the winners from this guild are the key to winning your Oscar office pool. I’m going out on a limb and predicting Les Miserables takes the Oscar in Art Direction in a few months. Just sayin ;)
If you’ve ever tried predicting winners in the Art Direction or other non high-profile categories, you simply resort to the guessing game. We’ve all been there. Why not increase your odds of winning your Oscar pool by doing a little due diligence. Check out the nominations from the 17th annual Art Directors Guild awards below. Not only do they honor remarkable work in film, but also in television and advertising. The winners will be handed out in a ceremony hosted by comedian Paula Poundstone on February 2, in Beverly Hills.
