Grant Major has been selected to receive the Hollywood Film Festival’s Production Designer of the Year award.
The kudo will be presented at the festival’s Oct. 24 awards ceremony. Previous recipients are Stuart Craig, William Creber, Harold Michelson, Robert Boyle and Henry Bumstead.
Major’s selection followed a recommendation of the Council of the Art Directors Guild. He won an Oscar earlier this year for his work in art direction for “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” and was nominated for the two previous “Lord of the Rings” films.
Major also won the Art Directors Guild’s Excellence in Production Design Awards for his work on the final two “Lord of the Rings” films.
