    Another snub for The Master – this one really hurts – Jack Fisk won the award for TWBB

    Not really, I don’t even know what happens in the film, but judging solely from trailer, it definitely feels like a fantasy, and very fable-like.

    I’m thinking Karenina, Django, Les Mis, Lincoln and Life Of Pi for Oscars. TDKR and The Hobbit possible spoilers. Wouldn’t mind seeing Cloud Atlas nominated, since the fans could use at least some form of recognition for the film. But I feel confident predicting it will be these 5.

    The final nominees will be Les Miserables, Lincoln, The Hobbit, Anna Karenina and the last spot: Cloud Atlas vs. Django vs. Life of Pi.

    This is one of my favorite categories. There are a slew of terrific AD to pick from. Even the epic fail Total Recall features some great work here, and these Guild Members salute who they wish. They’re almost always deserving nominees.

    I dont think the nominees here will transfer over to Oscar. My guess is, the very most, 3/5.

    The oscar Nominations should be

    LES MISERABLES
    LINCOLN
    THE HOBBIT
    ANNA KARENINA
    DJANGO UNCHAINED

    Looks like The Master is getting no love
    from the art directors guild as well as the
    Producers Guild…bodes badly for the film.

    I don’t see “Life Of Pi” getting snubbed. They have embraced this kind of work in the last few years. I doubt it gets left out since a lot of the impact of the film is based on the color palette and how the effects function in favor of the creation of the production design. Look at “Avatar” and even “Inception” for examples of films that use special effects to further explore the possibilities of art direction in medium. So I don’t see this out of the line-up.

    I think The Hobbit might get snubbed though. A lot of the art direction comes from ideas and execution very similar to the first three films, so there might be a feeling that while well executed, it’s sorta been-there-done-that. 

    I do think it will be Karenina vs. Life Of Pi for the win.

    Not any more than any of the other supposed “fantasy” films up there. Lol. The Hobbit I’ll concede. The Dark Knight, is debatable.

    ‘Skyfall,’ ‘Life of Pi,’ ‘Anna Karenina’ Triumph at Art Directors Guild Awards

    Published: February 02, 2013 @ 10:37 pm



    By Lucas Shaw

    “Life of Pi,” “Anna Karenina” and “Skyfall” won the film prizes at the 2013 Art Directors Guild Awards on Saturday during a ceremony at the Beverly Hilton. “Life of Pi” and “Anna Karenina” will both contend for Oscars later this month, along with three fellow nominees on Saturday night.

    Though up for five Oscars, “Skyfall” is not nominated in this category. The guild still lauded the latest film in the iconic spy franchise in its Contemporary Film section, one of two wins for 007 on Saturday.

    The James Bond franchise took home an award for Outstanding Contribution to Cinematic Imagery, a prize shared between Bond stalwarts Sir Ken Adam, Dennis Gassner, Allan Cameron and Peter Lamont. Gassner earned the award for “Skyfall,” but ADG awards go to the Production Designer, Art Director, Assistant Art Director and their team.

    Production designer Sarah Greenwood won for her work in Joe Wright’s “Anna Karenina,” an adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s iconic novel. “Karenina” was one of three Oscar nominees in the Period Film category.

    “Life of Pi” won for David Gropman’s (left) work on Ang Lee’s adaptation of Yann Martel’s best-selling novel.

    George Zimmerman won the year’s lifetime achievement award, honoring a career best known for his work on “Star Trek.” Zimmerman, unable to attend due to an ilness, previously won in 1996 for his work on the pilot episode of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.”

    The guild also inducted Preston Ames, Richard MacDonald and Edward S. Stephenson into its Hall of Fame.

    Comedian Paula Poundstone hosted the ceremony, which gives out nine awards, honoring the best in film, television, commercials and music videos. Mark Worthington won in the TV Movie or Mini-Series category for his work on “American Horror Story: Aslyum.” The show edged out “Game Change,” Hatfield and McCoys,” “Hemingway & Gellhorn” and “Mockingbird Lane.”

    Keith Raywood and his team took home the award for the Mick Jagger-hosted episode of ‘Saturday Night Live” in the Multi-Camera, Variety or Unscripted Show category. The Oscars received an award as well, with John Myhre taking the trophy in the Awards, Music or Games Show category.

    HBO earned a pair of awards, for “Girls” and ‘Game of Thrones.” “Girls” won in the Half-Hour Single Camera Series thanks to Judy Becker, who thanked the show’s creator and star Lena Dunham in her acceptance speech. “Game of Thrones” triumphed in The One-Hour Single Camera category for Gemma Jackson’s work on “The Ghost of Harrenhal,” the fifth episode of the show’s second season.

    XBOX came out on top in the Commercial and Music Videos field for Christopher Glass’ work on “Halo 4 Commissioning.”

    Great choices. I’m particularly happy for “Skyfall”.
