‘The Favourite,’ ‘Black Panther,’ ‘Mrs. Maisel’ Among Art Directors Guild Winners

“The Favourite,” “Black Panther” and “Crazy Rich Asians” walked away with top film honors at the 23rd annual Art Directors Guild Awards Saturday night.

“This journey started six years ago with ‘Fruitvale Station’ and a very awkward Skype interview,” Hannach Beachler, production designer of “Black Panther,” said in thanking director Ryan Coogler. “This journey has altered my life … Just learning about who I am and what I want this film to be, and really pushing the idea that design is not just brick and mortar. It’s not just wax, it’s not just paint. It’s your heart, it’s your soul, it’s everything we do every single day.”

In the TV fields, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Glow” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” were among the winners.

Oscar-nominated production designer Jeannine Oppewall (“L.A. Confidential,” “Seabiscuit”) and ADG-nominated production designer Ed Verreaux (“Jurassic Park”) received lifetime achievement awards from the organization.

“I want to dedicate this award to all the girls out there in the middle of small town nowhere in whatever country,” Oppewall said in her speech. “Enjoy the fight, because in the fight process, you will learn that you, too, can get up every morning and find something you can be passionate about and creative in.”

“Mary Poppins Returns” director Rob Marshall received the Cinematic Imagery Award.

Oscar nominees for production design this year were “Black Panther,” “The Favourite,” “First Man,” “Mary Poppins Returns” and “Roma.”
