On Sunday, February 26th the much deserved statuette will be awarded to a lucky production designer, set decorator and costume designer at the 84th Academy Awards presentation or as I like to call it, Hollywood's Super Bowl Sunday.
In the event you need a recap for the nominations for Best Costume Design and Best Art Direction, be sure to check out my articles Behind the Scenes: Oscar's Best Costume Nominees for Fox News Magazine and Oscar's Preview: The Year's Best Sets for Architectural Digest.
While Hugo appears to be the favorite for Art Direction and W.E. for Costume, I think The Artist may take home the lion's share of awards.

Best of luck to all the nominees and happy Oscar weekend!!!
P.S. Many thanks to all of you who attended my lecture at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art last night. What a great event and very impressed with your city and loved all the Arthur Elrod houses.
