2012 Art Directors Guild Awards nominees announced

HUGO - Asa Butterfield and Chloë Grace Moretz

Hugo in 3D posterHow many guilds do they have anyway? The Art Directors Guild has now announced its list of nominees for best film of the year, from the point of view of art direction of course, and it is great to see a few names listed that would normally come up in a more generalised list.

The Artist and Hugo are still at the top of that list, but there’s some love for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, the very underrated Anonymous and Cowboys & Aliens and the comic book perfection of Captain America: The First Avenger. Of course, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides turns up in one of the few non-Razzie Awards it is likely to receive.

A full list of nominees, including television, can be found at the official ADG site.
