Art Directors Guild (ADG) Nominees

The Art Directors are a small guild, but a guild nonetheless, so they are a part of the voting block of the Academy and therefore have a voice. So frontrunners like Hugo, The Help, The Artist, and The Descendants continue their run. Tinker, Drive, and Extremely Loud finally make it into a guild race, so there are some people out there still going for them. Bridesmaids and Girl With Dragon Tattoo, backed up their PGA nods with another guild nod, and Sherlock Holmes was snubbed. Also interesting to note that Tintin got nominated, meaning that Art Directors saw it more as a live action film than an animated one, which could complicate a nomination for Best Animated Feature.
