Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Production Design

The competition: The Irishman (Bob Shaw and Regina Graves), Jojo Rabbit (Ra Vincent and Nora Sopková), 1917 (Dennis Gassner and Lee Sandales), Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Barbara Ling and Nancy Haigh), Parasite (Lee Ha-jun and Cho Won-woo)

Previous winners: Black Panther, The Shape of Water, La La Land, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Great Gatsby, Lincoln
My winner: Ms. Purple
The facts: Vincent was nominated in 2012 for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.” Gassner won in 1991 for “Bugsy” and has also been nominated for “Barton Fink,” “Road to Perdition,” “The Golden Compass,” “Into the Woods,” and “Blade Runner 2049.” Sandales contended in 2011 for “War Horse.” Haigh also won in 1991 for “Bugsy” and was nominated for “Barton Fink,” “Forrest Gump,” “Road to Perdition,” “Dreamgirls,” “True Grit,” and “Hail, Caesar!” At the Art Directors Guild Awards, “Parasite” won the contemporary feature film prize, while “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” defeated the other three nominees in this race in the period feature film category.

Who should win: “Parasite” is my favorite of this bunch.
Who will win: Though I’d love for “Parasite” to take it, I think Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will prevail.
