Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Art Direction

The competition: American Hustle (Judy Becker and Heather Loeffler), Gravity (Rosie Goodwin, Andy Nicholson, and Joanne Woollard), The Great Gatsby (Beverley Dunn and Catherine Martin), Her (K.K. Barrett and Gene Serdena), 12 Years a Slave (Alice Baker and Adam Stockhausen)

Previous winners: Lincoln, Hugo, Alice in Wonderland, Avatar, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Sweeney Todd
My winner: The Great Gatsby
The facts: Only two of these people have been nominated before – Woollard in 1987 for “Hope and Glory,” and Martin for two previous collaborations with Baz Luhrmann, “Romeo + Juliet” and “Moulin Rouge,” the latter of which she won. All but “The Great Gatsby” are nominated for Best Picture, though that doesn’t matter all that much in this race.

Who should win: “The Great Gatsby”
Who will win: I think that The Great Gatsby is the frontrunner, though feasibly any of the other nominees except for “Her” could also prevail.
