Art Directors Guild nominees announced

Unlike the critics awards and the Golden Globes, the guild awards really give you a strong idea of where the Academy is heading since there’s a considerable overlap among the voting bodies. Here are the nominees for the Art Directors Guild awards; they’re broken up by genre, which means there are 15 nominees, so they’re not exceedingly selective. But most of the top overall contenders (with the exception of Precious and Invictus) are included. The omission of Nine is not a good sign.

A Serious Man
Inglourious Basterds
Julie & Julia
Public Enemies
Sherlock Holmes

Fantasy Film
District 9
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
