The Art Directors Guild, American Society of Cinematographers and Motion Picture Sound Editors are three artisan organizations announcing their nominations this week. Their nominations will set the tone for the Oscar race for production design, cinematography and partly for the best sound race, now in its third year as a combined category for sound mixing and effects editing.

We’re expecting plenty of mentions for “Everything Everywhere All at Once” and “Top Gun: Maverick,” with possible surprises for “Elvis” and “All Quiet on the Western Front” which are both picking up momentum.

All three guilds will announce their nominees on Monday, Jan. 9.
