The art directors guild bestowed its top production design awards to Mad Max, The Revenant and The Martian, leaving no real clues where Oscar will go in this category, since it was thought to be between The Revenant and Mad Max anyway. My guess is Mad Max, since Revenant is mostly natural locations and less actual production design- but if they adhere to that description than frankly, Bridge of Spies and Carol were robbed for this. We'll have to see what Bafta chooses for this one.
- Best Production Design- Period: The Revenant
- Best Production Design-Contemporary: The Martian
- Best Production Design-Fantasy: Mad Max: Fury Road
