BEST ART DIRECTION / SET DECORATION / PRODUCTION DESIGN


The Art Director is the person who oversees the design, development, and construction of the film's sets, contributing an immeasurable part of what gives the film its look. Whether it's creating a world that never existed and could only exist in a filmmaker's mind, or recreating sets for a time long ago, these were the best achievements in art direction selected each year by the Academy.
