ADG Awards: 'Birdman', 'Grand Budapest Hotel', & 'Guardians' Take Top Film Prizes – 'Game Of Thrones', 'True Detective Among TV Winners

Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Guardians Of The Galaxy took the top film honors tonight at the Art Directors Guild’s 19th Annual Excellence in Production Design Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Birdman took the Contemporary Film prize, The Grand Budapest Hotel won for Period Film and Guardians Of The Galaxy took the Fantasy Film trophy.

Christopher Nolan paid tribute to the artists he’s worked with, in particular his longtime art director Nathan Crowley, in accepting the guild’s prestigious Cinematic Imagery Award. “Whatever I’ve contributed to cinematic imagery is due to my collaborations with my designers,” Nolan said, listing the numerous examples of Crowley’s, and other artists’ contributions to his films. “I think the art department stands for everything wonderful about movies, everything exciting about movies. They stand for how wonderful movies could be if we’d just stand back and let them work.

On the TV side, HBO was the big winner, with Game Of Thrones winning the One-Hour Period or Fantasy Single-Camera Television Series award, True Detective taking the Contemporary prize, and Silicon Valley getting the nod for Half-Hour Single Camera Television Series. Here’s the complete list:
