The luxuriant production design (and a big part of the film’s $90M budget) bumps Sony/Columbia’s Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood up one to the top spot in Production Design this month, pushing Netflix’s The Irishman down to #2. Disney’s Aladdin inches up but Universal’s 1917 and Cats as well as Sony’s Little Women stay put in the top 5.

Last year’s Costume Design winner Ruth E. Carter (Black Panther) is back in a big way and looking for her second nomination with Netflix’s Dolemite Is My Name. She moves up into the top 5 this month, displacing Focus Features’ Harriet, which falls down into the Other Contenders section. Warner Bros’ Joker makes its claim as a new entry this month.
