Avatar, Sherlock Holmes and Mad Men Snag Prizes at Art Directors Guild Awards” width=”560″/>

Last night, the Art Directors Guild joined the fray that is the awards season, honoring Sherlock Holmes, Avatar and The Hurt Locker for best production design in the period, fantasy and contemporary film categories, respectively. So what does this mean vis-a-vis the Oscars? Ever since the guild began handing out the ADG Award thirteen years ago, eight recipients have proceeded to win an Oscar, so it means that either Sherlock Holmes or Avatar stand a decent chance. (The Hurt Locker was left out in this particular Oscar race.) Also picking up an award for the evening was Mad Men, for best single-camera television series.More winners after the jump.
