Saturday’s Art Director’s Guild Awards saw The Dark Knight pull down another honor. It took the prize in the “Fantasy” category, while The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was recognized as the “Period” entry. Slumdog Millionaire got the “Contemporary” slot. George Lucas was given an honorary award for “contributions to cinematic imagery”.
With less than a week until the Oscars, it seems that momentum for Best Picture continues to pile up for “Millionaire”, while buzz is pretty consistent for the late Heath Ledger.
