The Set Decorator Society of America Honors Promising Young Woman, Mank, Tenet, and The Prom!


Yesterday, the Set Decorator Society of America (SDSA) announced their picks for the best set designs of 2020!  The winners were Promising Young Woman, Mank, Tenet, and The Prom.  Out of those four, only Mank and Tenet were also nominated for the Best Production Design Oscar.

As far as the Oscar goes, I think Mank probably has the edge over Tenet, if just because the Academy seems to really, really like Mank.

Here are the SDSA nominees and winners:
