The Art Directors Guild (ADG) has announced the winners for its 27th Annual ADG Awards, honoring the best in production design, art direction, and illustration for films, television, commercials, and more. This year’s ADG Awards will be presented on Saturday, Feb. 18 at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown.
The work by Production Designer Florencia Martin and her art team for Damien Chazelle‘s Babylon won for Period Feature Film, while Glass Onion won for Contemporary Feature Film, while Everything Everywhere All at Once won for Fantasy Feature Film.
The TV series that were honored with ADG Awards included Apple TV‘s Pachinko, Hulu‘s How I Met Your Father, and Our Flag Means Death from HBO Max.
Produced by Michael Alan Glover, the ceremony was hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown (Community) with presenters including Annette Bening, D’Arcy Carden, Brett Gelman, Emily Hampshire, Nicole Kidman, Luke Macfarlane, Kathryn Newton, Vico Ortiz, Tom Pelphrey, Samba Schutte, Jimmi Simpson, and Nia Vardalos
The ADG presents awards to film in four categories, including animation, and eight television categories, with all five Oscar nominees for Production Design represented in the nominations. Furthermore, Baz Luhrmann and Production/Costume Designer/Producer wife, Catherine Martin, were presented with the Cinematic Imagery Award by actress Nicole Kidman, who gushed about working with them on Moulin Rouge! and Australia. Lurhmann gave a hilarious speech, while also paying loving tribute to his wife, who was nominated for an ADG Award for Elvis, along with Karen Murphy.
Guillermo del Toro was presented this year’s William Cameron Menzies award by Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse director, Peter Ramsey, with two of his projects up for ADG Awards this year — Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio and Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities — both of them winning their respective categories.

Hoyos (Babylon, The Batman), Production Designer Lilly Kilvert, and Storyboard Artist Janet Kusnick, whose honors were presented after a speech by ADG President, Nelson Coates, giving thanks to all who were involved with the sold-out event.
