adg awards predictions skyfall best exotic marigold hotel flight zero dark thirty impossible

None of this year's Art Directors Guild nominees for Best Contemporary Design are nominated for Best Production Design at the Oscars, but our predictors are nevertheless confident that "Skyfall" will win when awards are handed out tomorrow, February 2. The latest film in the James Bond franchise gets 8/5 odds, with support from four of our editors and more than 200 users.

"Skyfall" was designed by Dennis Gassner, who won an Oscar in 1991 for "Bugsy" and an ADG Award in 2007 for "The Golden Compass."

In second place with 14/5 odds is "Zero Dark Thirty." With production design by first-time nominee Jeremy Hindle, the film gets support from two editors and almost 50 users.

One editor and more than a dozen users are betting on "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," placing it third with 9/2 odds. It was designed by Alan MacDonald, a previous nominee for "The Queen."

"The Impossible" is in fourth place with 11/2 odds. Production designer Eugenio Caballero previously won an Oscar and an ADG Award for his work on "Pan's Labyrinth."

In fifth place is "Flight" with distant 10/1 odds. Its production designer, Nelson Coates, is a first-time ADG nominee; he was previously nominated at the Primetime Emmys for his art direction for the miniseries "The Stand" in 1994.
