15th Art Directors Guild (ADG) Awards - nominations

The Art Directors Guild (ADG) announced the nominees competing in its 15th annual Excellence in Production Design Awards for 2010 earlier today. They award nine categories for theatrical motion pictures, television, commercials and music videos. The three categories for feature films are Period Film, Fantasy Film and Contemporary Film.

The Period Film nominees are True Grit, The King's SpeechShutter Island, Robin Hood and Get Low. For Fantasy Films, the nominations went to Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Inception, Tron: Legacy and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The nominees for Contemporary Film are Black Swan, The Social Network, The Fighter, The Town, and 127 Hours.

The Television Series nominees are Mad Men, True Blood, The Tudors, 24 and Glee.

A Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented by director David Lynch to Academy Award-winning Production Designer Patricia Norris. In addition, the ADG will induct the esteemed production designers Alexander Golitizen, Albert Heschong and Eugène Lourié into its Hall of Fame. This year's Art Directors Guild Cinematic Imagery Award will be presented to Syd Dutton and Bill Taylor, long-time visual effects artists from the company Illusion Arts.

In the film and television world, the terms Art Direction and Production Design are used interchangeably. If both terms are used in the credits, the Production Designer is considered the higher-ranking position. The Production Designer/Art Director works together with the Director and the Cinematographer to create the visual style of the film. The Cinematographer deals with the camera and lighting, while the Production Designer controls the look of everything placed in front of the camera, e.g. colours, textures, props, etc. 

The Art Directors Guild (IATSE Local 800) represents nearly 2,000 members who work throughout the United States, Canada and the rest of the world in film, television and theater as Production Designers, Art Directors, and Assistant Art Directors; Scenic, Title and Graphic Artists; Illustrators and Matte Artists; and Set Designers and Model Makers. 

The awards ceremony will take place Saturday, February 5, 2010 at the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills with Paula Poundstone hosting for the second consecutive year.
