Art Directors Guild honors in a flash

Paula Poundstone hosts ADG awards in Beverly Hills

Other kudofests could take a lesson from the Art Directors Guild, whose BevHilton ceremony on Saturday moved at a quick pace, thanks to emcee Paula Poundstone.

Eve Stewart, who won for period design on “The King’s Speech,” came barefoot to the stage explaining, “I didn’t have time to put on my shoes because I didn’t think I would win.”

Jesse B. Benson, winner for his Dos Equis commercial, said, “I have a long list of people to thank,” then expressed gratitude to only two, one of whom was his wife.

Patricia Norris received a lifetime achievement award from frequent collaborator David Lynch, who said, “There are workers and workers and Patty is a worker 2011 — no freakouts, no baloney, no prima donna. She is solid gold.”

Accepting the prize, Norris simply said, “I’m still alive.”
