Final Oscar Predictions: Art Direction

Will Win - Hugo
Could Win - The Artist or Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
Should Win - Hugo or HP72

Commentary - In a sweep of the awards, there is always a possibility that The Artist takes along with it a bunch of technical awards, like this one. However, neither the Art Director's Guild nor the BAFTA (both of which had overlapping members with the Academy) went with The Artist. The Art Director's Guild did go with Harry Potter for one of it's categories, and while the series has been a staple in this category since the beginning, I don't think it has enough push to make it into the winner's circle. Instead I am going with BAFTA and ADG winner Hugo. The magnificent train station is a feat, and the film is beloved. I think it has this one in the bag.
