The 27th Annual Art Director’s Guild Awards returned to an in-person ceremony at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown on Saturday evening, with “Babylon,” “Everything Everywhere All At Once” and “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” among the top honors.
“Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio” took home the award for animated feature. “Pachinko,” “The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power” and “Severance” were among the main TV winners.
The eventual winner of the production design Oscar has landed an ADG nomination.
Nicole Kidman presented the Art Directors Guild’s Cinematic Imagery award to “Elvis” director Baz Luhrmann and his longtime producing partner and Oscar-winning production and costume designer Catherine Martin. Their 30-year collaboration includes films such as “The Great Gatsby,” “Australia,” “Romeo + Juliet,” “Strictly Ballroom” and “Moulin Rouge!”
Del Toro, also nominated for an Oscar this year for directing “Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio,” was feted with the esteemed William Cameron Menzies award, commending his visually striking and emotionally rich body of work.
Michael Denering, known for his work on “Batman Returns” and “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” was given the guild’s lifetime achievement award. He told the audience of his peers to “teach the young people and be their mentors.”
Hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown, the ADG Awards celebrated outstanding production design in theatrical motion pictures, television, commercials, animated features and music videos.
“We are so proud to honor the production designers and artists who create a vision to transport the audience into different worlds. Tonight’s slate of ADG winners and honorees are the best visual storytellers in the business and we congratulate them as we celebrate another year of excellence in production design,” said Michael Allen Glover, ADG Awards Chair.
