‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi,’ ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘Lady Bird’ Nab Art Directors Guild Nominations

Studio tentpoles “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “Dunkirk,” fantasy “The Shape of Water,” and independent comedy “Lady Bird” are among the nominees for the Art Directors Guild’s Excellence in Production Design Awards.

The feature film winners will be announced in three categories — period, fantasy, and contemporary — on Jan. 27 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

In the period film category, “Dunkirk” and “The Shape of Water” were nominated with “Darkest Hour,” “Murder on the Orient Express,” and “The Post.” In the fantasy field, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was nominated along with “Beauty and the Beast,” “Blade Runner 2049,” “War for the Planet of the Apes,” and “Wonder Woman.” The contemporary film noms are “Lady Bird,” “Downsizing,” “Get Out,” “Logan,” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

“La La Land” won the contemporary award from the ADG last year and then went on to nab the Academy Award for production design.

The ADG also unveiled nominees for its new award for feature animation for “Cars 3,” “Coco,” “Despicable Me 3,” “The Lego Batman Movie,” and “Loving Vincent.”

Previously announced ADG honors include the William Cameron Menzies Award to Ron Clements and John Musker, directors of “The Little Mermaid” and “Moana”; Norm Newberry, John Moffitt, James J. Murakami, and Martin Kline will receive lifetime achievement awards; Kathleen Kennedy will be honored with the cinematic imagery award; and Matthew Loeb will get the leadership award.
