“No Time to Die,” “Nightmare Alley” and ” Dune” were among the big winners at Saturday evening’s 26th annual Art Directors Guild’s Excellence in Production Design Awards.

After the COVID-19 pandemic drove last year’s presentations to a virtual format, the 2022 edition of the awards show returned to an in-person format at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown, complete with a red carpet.

The awards — which honor excellence in production design for theatrical motion pictures, television, commercials, music videos and animated feature films — was hosted by actress Yvette Nicole Brown.

Presenters included Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Costner, Marcia Gay Harden, James Pickens Jr., Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jeffrey Wright, Harvey Guillen, Alexandra Daddario, Natasha Leggero, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Soleil Moon Frye and Carl Clemon-Hopkins.

The show was live-streamed at www.adgawards26.com.

— director/screenwriter/producer Jane Campion, who is nominated for the best director Oscar for “The Power of the Dog,” received the Cinematic Imagery Award for work that has “consistently reflected the highest quality of production design”;
