Today begins the flurry of guild award nominations that can give you a good idea of which films are going to do well with the Academy. (As opposed to the Golden Globes or critics groups, many people who vote for guild prizes also vote for the Oscars.) The Art Directors Guild has announced its 15 nominees, including all the expected visual feasts (Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, Inception) and overall awards contenders (The Social Network, The King’s Speech, True Grit). Here are their lists:
The King’s Speech
Alice in Wonderland
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
The Social Network
The winners will be announced Feb. 5.
