Filmmaker, producer, theater director and choreographer Rob Marshall, whose films include the Oscar-winning “Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha” and the upcoming “Mary Poppins Returns,” will receive the Cinematic Imagery Award from the Art Directors Guild, it was announced Thursday.
The award “is given to those whose body of work in the film industry has richly enhanced the visual aspects of the movie-going experience,” according to the ADG. Previous recipients include Kathleen Kennedy, Brad Bird, David O. Russell, Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, John Lasseter, George Lucas, Warren Beatty, Clint Eastwood, Blake Edwards, Terry Gilliam, Norman Jewison, Robert S. Wise and Zhang Yimou.
Marshall, whose films have received a total of 23 Academy Award nominations and won nine, including Best Picture, will be honored at the 23rd annual Art Directors Guild’s Excellence in Production Design Awards on Feb. 2 at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown hotel.
“We are excited to recognize the amazing talents and creative contributions Rob Marshall has made to narrative design and imaginative storytelling, while so beautifully creating an incredible cinematic legacy … which includes some of the most successful movies of our time,” said ADG President Nelson Coates. “The breadth of his impact on the visual lexicon spans the worlds of film, television, theater and dance.”
