I just got back from Los Angeles for a week of book promotion events and was honored to attend the Art Directors Guild Gala for Excellence in Production Design awards last night. The event was held at the Beverly Hills Hilton (same place as the Golden Globes), red carpet, celebs and all. Designs on Film was honored and the evening was magical.
The awards went to Inception, Black Swan, The King's Speech, Saturday Night Live and Mad Men among many others. Congrats to all! I will post photographs and blog at a later date as jet lag is setting in!
In the meantime, here is my two cents on the Oscar race as covered by Variety. You can read the article here.
