ART DIRECTORS GUILD WINNERS


Best Art Direction - Period
DANTE FERRETTI (HUGO)


Best Art Direction - Fantasy
STUART CRAIG (HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 2)


Best Art Direction - Contemporary
DONALD GRAHAM BURT (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO)


A couple of firsts here. Extraordinarily, this is Dante Ferretti's first ADG - extraordinary because Ferretti is one of the best production designers working today. Also, this is the first ADG award for the Harry Potter franchise - how is that possible? How have the other seven films all been beaten by other films? If there's one thing which has been consistently great about the Harry Potter films, it's the production design.
