2013 Oscars nominations bubble: 'Skyfall,' 'The Intouchables,' Maggie Smith
Plus: Will 'Les Miserables' score an editing nod or not?
"The Master" - Best Production Design
It was a bit of a surprise to see Jack Fisk's work on "The Master" get the shaft from the Art Directors Guild. That pushed this former "sure thing" down the rungs of the ladder a bit and now it's dangling by a thread if at all. Of course, Fisk -- a legend -- was nominated just once before by both the guild and the Academy, for Paul Thomas Anderson's Best Picture nominee "There Will Be Blood." So the film's chances here could be tied in part to overall passion and its likelihood of a Best Picture nod. We'll see if it can slide in.
