Adg Awards 'Her', 'Gatsby' & 'Gravity', USC Scripters to '12 Years a Slave'

10 February 2014 11:32 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the weekend the Art Directors Guild (Adg) handed out their crop of awards for Best Production Design in Period, Contemporary and Fantasy film and the winners in their respective categories were Catherine Martin for The Great Gatsby, K.K. Barrett for Her and Andy Nicholson for Gravity. All three winners are nominated for an Oscar (see the full list of nominees here) and after these results I've updated my predictions from 12 Years a Slave to Gatsby. See those predictions here. Speaking of 12 Years a Slave, the USC Scripters Award was also handed out over the weekend and screenwriter John Ridley joined family members of nineteenth-century author Solomon Northup to receive the 26th-annual USC Libraries Scripter Award for his adaptation of Northup's memoir. "Until I read Solomon's memoir, I didn't know what being a writer was all about," Ridley said in his acceptance speech. "The way that Solomon wrote, the clarity with which he wrote, »

Art Directors Guild And Costume Designers Guild Reveal Their Nominees

9 January 2014 11:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Art Directors Guild and the Costume Designers Guild have become the latest groups to announce their nominees for 2013. They may not be considered as big or as important as the Producers Guild, the Directors Guild, or the Writers Guild, but they are still a pretty good prognosticator for who will eventually take home the Oscar in their respective categories.

The Art Directors split their categories up into Period, Fantasy, and Contemporary Films (along with various TV categories), but the main one of importance here is the Period, where we find the more fanciful, eye-catching designs. Here, we find what was mostly expected: American Hustle, The Great Gatsby, Inside Llewyn Davis, Saving Mr. Banks, and 12 Years a Slave. If I had to venture a guess, I’d say that The Great Gatsby has this one in the bag. There were those who didn’t enjoy the film (I actually found »

2014 Oscar Predictions: Art Directors Guild and USC Scripters Nominees Announced

9 January 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've made a couple updates to my 2014 Oscar predictions in the Best Production Design and Best Adapted Screenplay categories as a pair of new pieces of "food for thought" arrived this morning in the form of nominations from the Art Directors Guild and the 26th USC Scripter Award nominees were announced. As far as changes made as a result of these announcements, most will be found in my Best Production Design predictions, which I hadn't updated in ages so it meant adding films including Her (which is now a predicted nominee) and The Wolf of Wall Street. In the screenplay categories I've left Best Original Screenplay alone, while I have a good feeling about my predicted nominees for Adapted Screenplay where the question I have is will it be Terence Winter's Wolf of Wall Street that gets a nom or Tracy Letts' August: Osage Countyc Right now I'm going with August. »
