‘The Shape of Water,’ ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Top 2018 Art Directors Guild Awards

“The Shape of Water” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” emerged as big winners at the 2018 Art Directors Guild Awards, held Saturday night in Hollywood.

Paul Denham Austerberry, production designer on the Guillermo del Toro film, won in the category of Best Period Film. “Logan” designer Francois Audouy took Best Contemporary Film, while Dennis Gassner won Best Fantasy Film for “Blade Runner 2049.”

“The Shape of Water” and “Blade Runner 2049” are both nominated for the Oscar for Production Design, alongside “Darkest Hour, ” “Dunkirk” and “Beauty and the Beast.” “Shape of Water” beat two of those films, “Darkest Hour” and “Dunkirk,” in its ADG category, while “Blade Runner” beat “Beauty and the Beast” in its category.

On the TV side, Hulu’s Margaret Atwood adaptation took the prize for best hourlong contemporary series for the work of production designer Juliem Berghoff. “Game of Thrones” won for single-camera fantasy series, and Netflix’s “Black Mirror” won for TV movie or limited series.

Lucasfilm chief and prolific producer Kathleen Kennedy was honored with the Outstanding Contribution to Cinematic Imagery Award from the guild, for her many credits including the Indiana Jones series, “Jurassic Park” and the “Star Wars” franchise.

Other honorary awards went to Disney animators Ron Clements and John Musker, who won the Cinematic Imagery Award; and International IATSE President Matthew D. Loeb, who was given a special Leadership Award.

Lifetime Achievement Awards were given to production designers Norm Newberry and James Murakami, scenic artist John Moffitt and senior illustrator/art director Martin Kline. The Outstanding Creative Achievement Award went to Michael Baugh, while Sir Ken Adam and Tyrus Wong were inducted into the ADG Hall of Fame.

Presenters included Gary Oldman, Lou Diamond Phillips, Will Arnett and Katee Sackhoff.

In the 21 years of the ADG Awards’ existence, one of its winners has gone on to win the Oscar for Art Direction or Production Design 14 times. Since the ADG split into its current alignment of period, fantasy and contemporary categories 11 years ago, eight of the Oscar winners were first ADG winners: four from the period category, three from fantasy and one from contemporary.

No film has ever won the Oscar for design without first being nominated for a ADG Award.

The ceremony took place in the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland.
