87th Oscar Production Design Updates (2014-2015 Awards Season) (7/22/2014)

For the first time this year, in addition to rewarding the production designer and set decorator, the Academy will allow a digital designer to be recognized “when the environment of a film is substantially composed of animation and digital artistry.” It’s a welcome change to keep up with the times, but one that I don’t think will substantially alter the films that are nominated, only the nominees who are given credit for them.

An early fan favorite in this category seems to be The Grand Budapest Hotel, and while I have no doubt that critics will try to push the film in their precursor awards, I’ve left it just outside my top five for now. My sense is that designers may feel like Wes Anderson gets a little too “cute” with their craft, almost turning it into a gimmick, and that they’d prefer to vote for something a bit more substantial.
