1. "Sleepy Hollow" (Production Designer: Rick Heinrichs)
The original budget of "Sleepy Hollow" wouldn't have allowed for the amount of construction that went into realizing the Dutch-inspired titular hamlet and all the terrifying elements therein, but things changed and they built it, marvelously, from the ground up. And it's just jaw-dropping, helped immensely by Emmanuel Lubezki's lush photography. To say nothing of the detailed and specific set decoration throughout. Oh, and yes: Oscar winner.
