Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - K.K. Barrett (Production Design); George DeTitta Jr. (Set Decoration)
The nominations for the 84th Academy Awards were recently announced, and we thought it would be fun to take a look at the interiors from the Best Picture nominees, like we did last year. Which interiors made the biggest impression on you in 2011?
Some of these films have also been nominated for Art Direction, and some have not. Yet even the most humble interior informs its story and plays an integral role in how we experience the film. Which interiors struck a chord with you? Was it the magic of Paris? The glamour of the silent screen? The steampunk charm of a train station? Or maybe, the simple comfort of a lived-in space, not unlike your own? Whatever it was, chances are, at least one of these films will live on in your design subconscious long after the winners have been announced...
Are there other movies from this last year that should be recognized for their interiors, as well?
