Oscars 2017: Best Production Design


The Academy Award for Production Design tends to go to the big, attention-getting sets. Recent winners include Sweeney Todd; The Grand Budapest Hotel; The Great Gatsby; Pan’s Labyrinth; and last year’s winner, Mad Max: Fury Road.

This year’s contenders are all notable, and include several previous winners. Will La La Land‘s bright and colourful interpretation of contemporary Los Angeles ride the wave of popularity that the film is enjoying, or will the Academy be wowed by the far-out looks of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Passengers, the muted weirdness of Arrival, or the wonderfully old-fashioned Hail, Caesar?
