The Art Directors Guild Awards for 2013

The Art Directors Guild (ADG) announced nominations in 10 categories of Production Design for theatrical motion pictures, television, commercials and music videos. Competing in the Art Directors Guild’s 18th Annual Excellence in Production Design Awards, the winners were announced on Saturday, February 8, 2014…indicated in bold.

According to the ADG website, “While the craft of production design and art direction dates back 100 years to the very beginning of filmmaking, it wasn’t until 1924 that 63 of the top men and women pursuing that craft formed the Cinemagundi Club (named after New York’s club for artists, the Salmagundi Club), a casual organization that met mainly for socializing at a Hollywood restaurant. Through the years the Cinemagundi Club developed into a forum for Production Designers and Art Directors to exchange views and to discuss problems. In 1937, the Club transformed itself into the Society of Motion Picture Art Directors. Television was added to its name 30 years later and in January of 2000, it became the Art Directors Guild.”  Read more about the ADG.
