No Country for Old Men continued its winning streak Saturday night at the Art Directors Guild's 12th annual Awards for Excellence in Production Design as its production designer Jess Gonchor took home the honors for best contemporary film.
Gonchor thanked the guild for acknowledging that "you just don't go into the desert and shoot something. It's so much more involved."
ADG chairman Tom Walsh kicked off the evening with a congratulatory toast to legendary art director Robert Boyle, whose credits include North by Northwest and The Birds, and who is to receive an honorary Academy Award at the upcoming Oscars. Walsh also congratulated the evening's nominees, noting that an art director's job is "translating the writer's word and the director's vision."
Hosted by Harry Shearer, the awards took place at the Beverly Hilton's International Ballroom.
"I want to thank the Golden Globes people for leaving their set. Eventually it was going to be used, and here we are," quipped Shearer to hearty laughter, referencing the table centerpieces and the scenic design created for the ADG ceremony by John Janavs.
