Oscar Nominees: Best Production Design

My predictions: 3/5
My ballot: Coming soon!
The nominees: Dune, Nightmare Alley, The Power of the Dog, The Tragedy of Macbeth, West Side Story

It was funny to hear this category announced right after Best Cinematography since the nominees are identical! I doubt that’s happened before but won’t research that now. I had bet on “Belfast” and “The French Dispatch,” a film that didn’t show up anywhere, which is a shame. These are all very solid choices, with Nightmare Alley and The Power of the Dog creating compelling period set pieces, The Tragedy of Macbeth making excellent use of its sparse surroundings, and West Side Story and Dune building vivid worlds. A great lineup.

My current bet to win: This can probably go to Nightmare Alley.
