Art Directors Guild (ADG) Nominations



The Art Directors Guild have announced their nomination in three categories: Period, Fantasy and Contemporary. Of these fifteen nominees we’ll likely find the five that will earn Academy Award nominations.

Some shocking snubs came today with Carol and Brooklyn missing out for Period and Room in Contemporary. Both films have been underperforming early in these guild nominations and that doesn’t bode well for their Oscar chances. Trumbo showed up, adding to its guild nomination total. Room was thought to have a good shot in Contemporary despite half the film taking place in a single room but in that category we have Sicario, a film that is already over-performing with the guilds (it just earned an ACE Eddie nom yesterday). Other high profile Contemporary films like Spotlight and The Big Short missed out as well.

Here are the nominees for the 20th Art Directors Guild awards:

Bridge of Spies
Crimson Peak
The Danish Girl
The Revenant

Jurassic World
Mad Max: Fury Road
Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Ex Machina
The Martian

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
