Art Directors Guild Nominees

The most interesting inclusion is Avatar, considering very few sets were actually built, and most was done by a computer. The biggest snub was of course for Nine. Despite bad reviews, it seemed it had a lock on costume and art direction nominations. It could still easily get a nod here, but if it doesn't have technical support, its BP coffin just got another nail in it.

As of now I think the nods will be

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Inglourious Basterds
Sherlock Holmes
Star Trek

But my expertise in this area is zero to none, so don't take my word for it.
