ADG Announces Award Nominations


With films running the gamut from The King’s Speech to Inception, the Art Directors Guild (ADG) has unveiled the nominees in competition for best production design in 2010. The nine categories cover work for theatrical motion pictures, television, commercials and music videos.

The ADG, IATSE Local 800, divides its nominations by genres as well as format. There are three categories for movies—historical, period and contemporary. Deadline for final voting, which is done online, is Feb. 3.

Winners will be announced Feb. 5 at the ADG’s 15th Annual Excellence in Production Design Awards dinner. The black-tie event will be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Comedienne Paula Poundstone is set to host for the second consecutive year.
