84th Oscar Art Direction Updates (2011-2012 Awards Season) (7/3/11)

Here are today’s rankings for the 84th Oscar Art Direction race, with previous ranking shown in parenthesis after each entry.

I feel really uncertain about my predictions here. Specifically, I feel like I have predicted too many “prestige” pictures for this category that likes to do its own thing with nominations for things like Alice In Wonderland, Harry Potter, Avatar, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Nine, Sherlock Holmes, etc…

There aren’t any films coming out from Tim Burton, and the closest thing to a Broadway-style musical this year seems to the The Artist (which I’ve listed as #7). In truth, any of the top 15 that I’ve listed here could potentially make it in, and I’ll be on the lookout between now and the next time I update these listings to see which ones are gaining momentum.

Today’s Rankings:

1. Jack Fisk and Jeanette Scott for The Tree Of Life (Predicted Winner) (previous rank 1)
2. Stuart Craig And Stephanie McMillan for Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part II (previous rank 2)
3. Dante Feretti, Dorothee Baussan and Francesca Lo Schiavo for Hugo Cabret (previous rank 3)
4. Rick Carter and Lee Sandales for War Horse (previous rank 5)
