5 min read

“Elvis,” “Babylon,” “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “All Quiet on the Western Front” and “Top Gun: Maverick” are among the films nominated by the Art Directors Guild (IATSE Local 800).

The Guild announced the nominations for its 27th Excellence in Production Design Awards in the Motion Picture, Television, Commercial and Music Video categories.

Winners will be announced at the ADG Awards Ceremony on February 18 at the InterContinental Hotel Los Angeles Downtown.

ADG divides live-action features into three categories. “All Quiet on the Western Front,” “Babylon,” “Elvis, “The Fablemans” and “White Noise” were nominated in the period feature film category.

“The Batman,” “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” “Everything Everywhere All at Once” and “Nope” received recognition in the fantasy feature film category.

Contemporary feature film nominations include “Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths,” “Bullet Train,” “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” “Tar” and “Top Gun: Maverick.”

Notable misses include Best Picture hopefuls “Women Talking,” “The Banshees of Inisharin” and “The Woman King.”

While it’s hard to use ADG wins as a precursor to the Oscars, it’s worth noting that last year’s ADG film award winner went to “Dune”; Its team of Patrice Vermette and Jussana Sipos won the Oscar for Production Design. In 2019, Hannah Beachler won an ADG for “Black Panther”; A few weeks later, he made history by becoming the first black person to win an Oscar for production design.

Towards the music video, Ethan Taubman, of diversity 10 Artisans to Watch Production Designer, received two nominations for creating sets for Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” and “Bejeweled” videos. He’s fronted the production designers for Adele’s “I Drink Wine” music video and Selena Gomez’s and Coldplay’s “Let Someone Go.”
