Art directors honor ‘River’ and ‘Rings’

'Carnivale,' 'Development,' 'Angels' among TV winners

Henry Bumstead’s work on “Mystic River” took top honors for production design for a contemporary film at the Art Directors Guild’s eighth annual awards, held Saturday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Bumstead, 89, who won an art direction Oscar in 1973 for “The Sting,” quipped, “If we live long enough, we’ll receive awards.”

Unlike the Oscars, the guild’s feature accolades are divided into two categories; Grant Major won for production design in a period or fantasy film for “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”

Production designer Roy Christopher accepted two trophies: He was the winner of the award for a variety or awards show, music special or documentary for his production design of the 75th annual Academy Awards. He also received the guild’s lifetime achievement honor, presented by longtime awards show producer Gil Cates.

Other honorees of the evening included Bernt Capra of HBO’s “Carnivale” for single-camera production; Dawn Snyder, “Arrested Development,” in the multicamera category; and Stuart Wurtzel, “Angels in America,” for TV movie or miniseries.

Event, which honors the entire production team for each category, also presented the Cinematic Imagery Award to two-time Academy Award-winning director and animator John Lasseter. Actress Bonnie Hunt (“Life With Bonnie”), who presented the award to Lasseter, VP of creative at Pixar, welcomed him to the stage by saying, “Thank you for bringing out the child in us and for the experience of your imagination.”
