The World War II drama “Dunkirk” and the car-chase picture “Baby Driver” were among the winners at the Annual Location Managers Guild International Awards.

Held Saturday at the Alex Theatre in Glendale and hosted by comedian Jonah Ray, the awards “spotlight international features, television and commercials in which the creative use of filming locations set the tone, enrich the character and enhance the narrative.”

“Dunkirk” won for outstanding locations in a period film, while “Baby Driver” won for contemporary film.

In the television categories, “Game of Thrones” won for outstanding location in a period TV series, while “Ozark” won for contemporary TV series.

A lifetime achievement awards was given to Canadian location manager Rino Pace, who worked on the films “Inception,” “Deadpool” and “Unforgiven.”
