Best Production Design — 2018 Oscar Picks

shape of water prod designBlade Runner 2049 and The Shape of Water are clear frontrunners this year. Everything about the visuals in Water is gorgeous, from the greeny-blue tinge of everything juxtaposed with the wonderful classic 50s stylings. Blade Runner also gave us incredibly stylized, luscious visuals opposing neon with the dark and gritty.

As much as we would love to see The Shape of Water pick it up (and we’ve still put that as our first pick here), it does seem like Blade Runner will be getting the statuette.
