â€¨'Tron Legacy,' 'Black Swan' and 'True Blood' lead Art Director's Guild nominees
The prestigious Art Director's Guild of America announced the nominees for their 2010 Awards this morning and on the movie side there were absolutely no surprises. Every expected best picture contender made the cut with guild's three categories (Period Film, Fantasy Film, Contemporary Film) with only the animated "Toy Story 3," "Winter's Bone" and "The Kids Are All Right" failing to get recognized. Unfortunately, the surplus of nods make it hard to determine who will make the Academy Awards cut of just five honorees, but "Black Swan," "Inception," "Alice in Wonderland" and "True Grit" are prime contenders.
On the television side, there were some noteworthy surprises including the first nomination for "Conan" on TBS, a nod for the critically lambasted "Outsourced" and the strange nomination for the 67th Golden Globe Awards (the set is about the size of most people's living rooms, if that and looks the same every year).
