Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Production Design

The competition: Dune (Patrice Vermette and Zsuzsanna Sipos), Nightmare Alley (Tamara Deverell and Shane Vieau), The Power of the Dog (Grant Major and Amber Richards), The Tragedy of Macbeth (Stefan Dechant and Nancy Haigh), West Side Story (Adam Stockhausen and Rena DeAngelo)

Previous winners: Mank, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Black Panther, The Shape of Water, La La Land, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Grand Budapest Hotel
My winner: Coming soon!
The facts: This is the ninth nomination for Haigh, who won twice, for “Bugsy” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” This is the fifth nomination for Major, who won for “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.” This is the fourth nomination for Stockhausen, who won for “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” This is the third nomination for Vermette, who was previously cited for “The Young Victoria” and “Arrival.” This is the second nomination for Vieau, who won for “The Shape of Water,” and also for DeAngelo, who was previously nominated for “Bridge of Spies.” At the Art Directors Guild Awards, “Nightmare Alley” and “Dune” took home prizes, while “Dune” won an award at the Set Decorators Society of America Awards. “Dune” won the BAFTA.
Who should win: I’d choose “Nightmare Alley.”
Who will win: While this could go to “Nightmare Alley,” I think Dune will ultimately triumph.
