For the second year in a row, prolific Broadway designer David Rockwell will serve as the Production Designer for the Academy Awards. The 82nd Awards, produced by Adam Shankman and Bill Mechanic, will take place March 7, 2010. In prepared statements, the producers talked about the announcement. “We loved the look and feel that David created for the Oscar show last year,” said Mechanic. “As soon as we signed on as producers, Adam and I knew that we wanted to work with him for our show.” “David is so creative and has such a great big-picture approach to set design,” said Shankman. “I’m beyond excited to be collaborating with him on the Oscars.” [Bryce J Renninger]
