Art Directors Guild Likes the Looks of ‘Elvis’, ‘Babylon’, ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’

Warner Bros./Paramount/A24

“Babylon,” “Elvis,” “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “Everything Everywhere All at Once” and “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” are among the films that have been nominated by the Art Directors Guild for the 2023 ADG Excellence in Production Design Awards, the guild announced on Monday.

In the Period Feature Film category, “Babylon” and “Elvis” will be competing against “The Fabelmans,” “White Noise” and “All Quiet on the Western Front,” the German film that has been scoring extremely well in guild awards and on shortlists so far this awards season.

In the Fantasy Feature Film category, “Avatar” and “Everything Everywhere” are nominated alongside “The Batman,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and “Nope.”

And in Contemporary Feature Film, “Glass Onion” will go up against “Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths,” “Bullet Train,” “Tár” and “Top Gun: Maverick.”

Of those three live-action feature categories, the period-film nominees most often predict the Oscar nominations in the Best Production Design category. Last year, three of the Oscar nominees were previously nominated in the ADG’s period-film category, while one (the winner, “Dune”) was nominated in the fantasy-film category and Oscar nominee “The Power of the Dog” was not nominated by the guild.

Animated feature nominees are “Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio,” “Lightyear,” “Marcel the Shell With Shoes On,” “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” and “Turning Red.”

In the eight different television categories, 40 different programs received nominations, including “The Crown,” “The Guilded Age,” “Pachinko,” “House of the Dragon,” “Wednesday,” “Euphoria,” “The White Lotus,” “Moon Knight,” “Station Eleven,” “Hacks,” “Only Murders in the Building” and “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.”

The full list of nominees is below.

Winners will be announced at the ADG Awards on Feb. 18 at the InterContinental Hotel Los Angeles.
