“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” was among the films honored at the Art Directors Guild’s 24th annual awards honoring the best production design.

Barbara Ling’s recreation of 1960s’ Los Angeles in the Quentin Tarantino film beat out “Ford v Ferrari,” “Jojo Rabbit” and “1917.”

Among fantasy films, “Avengers: Endgame” took the top honor. The other nominees were “Ad Astra,” “Aladdin,” “Dumbo,” “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”

In the contemporary film category, “Parasite” earned the nod over “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum,” “Knives Out” and “Us.”

The Excellence in Production Design Awards was presented at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown, where television producer/writer/director Chuck Lorre received the guild’s Cinematic Imagery Award.

“Chuck Lorre is one of television’s most prolific and successful writers/directors/producers. His impact on the television comedy landscape has been tremendous, with shows such as `The Big Bang Theory,’ `Two and a Half Men,’ `Mom’ and most recently, `The Kominsky Method,”’ ADG President Nelson Coates and ADG Awards Producer Scott Moses said in a joint statement.
