All five Oscar nominees for Best Production Design were also nominated by the Art Directors Guild. Three of those films are nominated for Period Film, while the other two are nominated for Best Fantasy Design: "Life of Pi" and "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."

Though neither or those films is expected to win the Oscar, they vast majority of our users expect one of them to win the ADG Award. "Life of Pi" has the edge, with four editors and more than 200 users predicting it to win, giving it 9/5 odds overall. The film was designed by David Gropman, who previously won an ADG Award in 2000 for "Chocolat."

"The Hobbit" is not far behind, with support from three editors and more than 70 users, giving it 23/10 odds. Production designer Dan Hennah previously won an Oscar and two ADG Awards for his work on Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

The rest of the field is far behind. "Cloud Atlas" is in third place with 9/2 odds. It was designed by Uli Hanisch, a first-time ADG nominee, and Hugh Bateup, who was previously nominated for "The Matrix" and "Superman Returns."

The sci-fi thriller "Prometheus" is in fourth place with 15/2 odds. Its designer is long-time Ridley Scott collaborator Arthur Max, who previously won an ADG Award for Scott's "Gladiator."

In last place is "The Dark Knight Rises," which only gets 8/1 odds despite the fact that the previous film in Christopher Nolan's franchise, "The Dark Knight," won this category in 2008. Production designers Kevin Kavanaugh and Nathan Crowley were both among that ADG-winning team. Kavanaugh also won in 1998 for his work on the TV series "The X-Files."

Winners will be announced tomorrow, February 2.
