I am sick. Literally, head cold, sore throat. So, no last-minute going out and seeing everything frenzy. Next weekend.
The Designers Guild awards were given out Tuesday night. Trish Summerville won for excellence in a contemporary film, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” Arianne Phillips won for period drama, “W.E.,” and Jany Temime won for fantasy film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2.”
It’s nice that they give awards to different genres since there is a different aesthetic in each.
Do you have your favorite this year? The nominees are:
Lisy Christl – Anonymous
Mark Bridges – The Artist
Sandy Powell – Hugo
Michael O’Connor – Jane Eyre
Arianne Phillips – W.E.
I hope Michael O’Connor wins for “Jane Eyre.” But I’m thinking the Academy will go for either “Anonymous” Lisy Christl because it’s a very costume-y film, or “The Artist,” Mark Bridges, because it’s a huge favorite to win everything.
Get your ballots ready. Every time someone says Academy, take a drink.
