    My only problem with picking La La Land is that it’s contemporary. Since when has a contemporary production design won an Oscar? The Academy tends to go with period pieces or fantasy productions. Beasts is more likely in their wheelhouse.

    All the President’s Men? They definitely are not kind to contemporaries. But La La Land has the musical card. Oscar do likes the art direction of musicals.

    Also BAFTA and Oscar tend to disagree a lot on this one. Just from 2000, BAFTA has gone differently 9 times.

    BAFTA supports the world of Harry Potter in a way the Academy has never done. Here, Production Design, has been consistently the category to show their love.

    of the 8 films, they nominated 7 and crowned 1. Oscar nominated 4 with 0 wins. That extends to all the categories. Harry Potter’s franchise never won an Oscar. I would find odd the Academy now deciding to award the spin-off and at the first try.

    My point is that even when La La Land is not an exact match to Oscar records, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them neither is.

    I really hope La La Land wins this one. Most of the Production Design is made off CGI on Fantastic Beast.

    I would be more concerned for La La Land if Arrival had won BAFTA because, unlike Fantastic Beasts, it has across-the-board support from the Academy. I’d still predict La La Land anyway because Oscar has a terrible track record for sci-fi in this category (you’d think Production Design would be the one place other than Visual Effects where the genre would do well, but no) and the Arrival sets are quite spare.

    La La Land still has Critics Choice and ADG. That should be enough. By the way, other contemporary films other than All the President’s Men to win this award are All That Jazz and West Side Story. Notice a theme? And that’s to say nothing of those painted backdrops in the final segment of La La Land, which instantly takes you out of any kind of contemporary aesthetic.

    I suspect Arrival, not Fantastic Beasts, is the greatest threat to La La Land here. The other two, forget it.

    I think that this one is definitely La La Land! Maybe the Hollywood-Charme of the sets did not appeal to the British Academy, but it definitely will to many, many Oscar voters. Yes, it’s contemporary, but with playful fantasy elements. And the colors! Come on! 😀

    I will predict La La Land to win. Then, Passengers second.

    As much as I hate the film, Passengers deserves to win this, if not then Fantastic Beasts, La La Land’s production design is as pretentious as the movie itself.

    ^ In what sense is the production design of La La Land ‘pretentious’? I feel that word gets used as a catch-all term for anything anyone wants to criticise these days.

    La La Land. This is a weak category with Passengers and Hail, Caesar in the mix. Fantastic Beasts and Arrival are the strongest rivals against LLL in production design. If Jackie or The Handmaiden had been nominated it might have been a tighter race, but LLL had this one from the start.

    I am predicting Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them will win. I am not as convinced that La La land will sweep; it will do great, winning at least 7, perhaps 8 awards but that will mean that won’t win in 5-6 categories. It would be a worthy winner, but Fantastic Beasts creates an amazing world and utilizes more design elements to create it.

    La La Land is definitely gonna take this one. I just don’t think there’s enough support for Fantastic Beasts to win.

    And the CGI designed itself?

    Most of La La Land is just the Hollywood streets and apartments.
