Art Directors Guild Winners (thanks to ladylurks and Niles Hemming):
- Best period film design: Donald Graham Burt, Benjamin Button
- Best fantasy film design: Nathan Crowley, The Dark Knight
- Best contemporary film design: Mark Digby, Slumdog Millionaire
The Art Directors Guild has it figured out. If brilliant action movies like The Bourne Ultimatum and The Dark Knight aren’t “serious” enough for filmmakers who play dress-up for a living, just make sure there are plenty of categories to cover all the creative bases.
Looking for a way to make the Oscars unique, distinctive, truly inclusive, and relevant? Fiddling around with the Best Song format is a limp dick attempt. Revamp the entire structure into something really revolutionary. How about splitting the event into two nights (like the Westminster Dog Show!) Have 3 or 4 genre winners in every category the first night, and then Best of Breed on night two.
Tirade continued after the cut, along with the TV categories.
