Just below are the 2015 Art Directors Guild nominations and as much as it may seem like Nightcrawler and American Sniper are currently bathing in nominations from all corners, what other contemporary films were going to get nominations? The period category, however, does consist of a few alternatives that weren’t nominated such as Mr. Turner and Fury and I can’t help but wonder what the guild would have done in attempting to categorize Noah… Is it a period film or a fantasy film? I’ll leave that one alone…

Perhaps one of the more surprisingly absent nominees is Maleficent. You could say there were too many special effects, but then again, isn’t that what today’s fantasy films primarily are?

That said, just below are the nominations for contemporary, period and fantasy films and you can find my current Production Design predictions right here. I see this one as The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s to lose, but perhaps you disagree?
