Film Awards 2022 Part 2: The production design and set decoration categories of the Oscars and BAFTAs

We love to shine a spotlight on the production design, art direction and set decoration of the movies, which provide us all with endless design inspiration. The highly imaginative worlds created in film and the hidden narrative contained within film sets and furniture not only allow us to live in alternate universes but also provide creative ideas for our own real surroundings.

Here in Part 2 of 2022’s film awards rundown, we present the production design and set decoration winners and nominees for the Oscars and the BAFTAs (with Part 1 covering 2022’s ADG, SDSA and BFDG Awards).


The Oscars

The 94th Academy Awards ceremony took place on March 27, 2022.

The Production Design Oscar went to Dune (Production Design: Patrice Vermette, Set Decoration: Zsuzsi Sipos). During his acceptance speech Vermette thanked director Denis Villeneuve for “allowing us to dream… for being a great friend…I owe this to you”.

The other nominees were The Tragedy of Macbeth (Stefan Dechant, Nancy Haigh), Nightmare Alley (Tamara Deverell, Shane Vieau), The Power of the Dog (Grant Major, Amber Richards) and West Side Story (Adam Stockhausen, Rena DeAngelo).


The book The Art and Soul of Dune takes you inside the world of Denis Villeneuve’s movie to discover the incredible creative journey that brought Frank Herbert’s iconic novel to the big screen.

Dune also swept many of the Oscar craft categories also winning for Cinematography, Film Editing, Music (Original Score), Sound and Visual Effects.
