'Sherlock Holmes' and 'True Blood' among Art Director's Guild Nominees
The nominees were announced today for the Art Directors Guild's 14th Annual Excellence in Production Design Awards for 2009. In order to recognize the worthy achievements in their field, the Art Director's break up their film nominees into three categories. The only big surprise was the lack of a period nomination for "Nine." The film may have gotten horrible reviews, but the production design wasn't one of the reasons why. Another curious omission is the 81st Academy Awards which was nominated for an Emmy last year. Is it possible production designer David Rockwell isn't in the guild or the show wasn't submitted? In either event, congratulations to "Wheel of Fortune" for landing a nomination in its place.
Additionally, "Glee," "Mad Men" and "True Blood" were some of the popular shows recognized on the Television side. Oh, and yes, that is a nod for the soon to be defunct "Jay Leno Show."
