15productiondesign_big There is such great work in this category this year. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is fully dependent on the integrity of its design work, while other period films like "Mr. Turner" and "Exodus: Gods and Kings" are absolutely exquisite. "Into the Woods" and "The Hobbit" are there for fantasy consideration while there's a big campaign afoot for "Noah." A unique choice would be "Interstellar," full of practical set design that almost fools you into thinking it's CGI. And remember: no Tim Burton film nominated in this category has ever lost, so if "Big Eyes" gets in, watch out.
