'Anna Karenina', 'Life of Pi' and 'Skyfall' Win at the 2013 Art Directors Guild Awards

2013 ADG WinnersMy current 2013 Oscar predictions for Best Production Design have Anna Karenina winning with Life of Pi the runner up and if the 2013 Art Directors Guild Award winners have anything to suggest about these predictions it would seem I'm on to something as both films were awarded in the Period and Fantasy categories respectively along with a win for Skyfall in the Contemporary category. Skyfall, however, is not up for an Oscar.

You can check out my predictions for the category here, and I have included the winners below in bold, red text along with the nominees in each category.

I also added all three winners to my Oscar Overture, which is slowly beginning to fill up. Next up are the VES Awards tomorrow, February 5.

    In no way was The Dark Knight Rises a fantasy film, it should have been contemporary.
    In my opinion, ZDT and Les Miserables should have won their categories. I'm not head over heels for these movies like other people are, but they did excel in Art Direction.

    That being said, I haven't seen Skyfall so I could very well be talking out of my ass.
