I like to see the guild awards, because the specificity allows for nominees that you won’t see on more general lists. The Art Directors Guild is especially interesting because they separate the films into three categories: period, fantasy, and contemporary. The 15 nominees highlight everything from Oscar favorites Hugo and The Artist, to crowd-pleasers Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 and Captain America, to poorly received films like Cowboys & Aliens and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. There’s a similar contrast in the TV nominees between the classy HBO programs you’d expect (Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, and Mildred Pierce) and the critical punching bags American Horror Story and The Playboy Club. The full list of nominees is after the break.
