The Art Directors Guild nominates Palm Springs!!


The Art Directors Guild has announced their nominees for the best of 2020.  The guilds are one of the more reliable precursors when it comes to making your Oscar predictions, if just because the guilds — as opposed to the various regional critics groups — actually include members of the Academy.

My immediate thought, upon looking at these nominees, is that there’s a lot of them and I definitely forgot to take my ADD meds this morning.  That said, I’m glad Palm Springs was nominated.  Palm Springs was one of the best films of 2020 and, while it’ll probably be too strange and comedic to score a best picture nod, it would still be nice to see it score an Oscar nomination or two.

The winners will be announced on April 10th!  Here are the nominees:
