Her, Gravity, The Great Gatsby Win Art Directors Guild


The Art Director’s Guild announced its winners last night (around the same time as the USC Scripter). They divide their nominees into three categories: Period, Contemporary, and Fantasy. The winners were, respectively, The Great Gatsby, Her, and Gravity. All three were nomination for Oscar’s Best Production Design, alone with American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave. None of these wins are particularly surprising, but it’s wonderful to see K.K. Barrett’s amazing designs for Her get some recognition. Perhaps the oddest thing about these awards is that Her‘s beautiful near-futurism was considered “contemporary,” while Gravity‘s contemporary and not-all-that-fantastical space station designs were placed in “fantasy.” Oh well, at least they both won.

Here is the complete list of the ADG Award winners. (Click here for the nominations.)
