"Fury Road" production designer Colin Gibson described his role as creating worlds "in the sandpit, to fumble through an understanding of this one."

This was echoed by "The Martian" production designer Arthur Max, who said his work was a "celebration of the human spirit using ingenuity and wit to survive — like every art department I've ever worked on."

And veteran production designer Jack Fisk was flabbergasted about winning for "The Revenant." For him, it was an unforgettable journey about making the frozen wilderness work for you.

The Revenant

Director David O. Russell ("Joy"), who received the ADG's Cinematic Imagery Award, presented by Josh Brolin ("Hail, Caesar!"), proclaimed that he's "as excited about production design as story and characters." He touted production designer Judy Becker, who's collaborated on his last four films and was nominated for "Joy." He was unapologetic about how meticulous they are. "Our films are very specific and we care about how they look like and what they feel like."

Lifetime Achievement Awards included scenic artist Bill Anderson ("The Sound of Music"), Oscar-nominated matte artist Harrison Ellenshaw ("Star Wars"), set designer William J. Newmon II ("Big Top Pee-Wee"), and Emmy- and Oscar-winning production designer Patrizia von Brandenstein ("Amadeus").

Four legendary women were inducted into the ADG Hall of Fame: Oscar- and Emmy-winning production designer Carmen Dillon ("Hamlet"),  Emmy-winning production designer and illustrator Dorothea Holt Redmond ("Rebecca"), Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning production and costume designer Patricia Norris ("Blue Velvet"), and art director and set designer Dianne Wager ("The Green Mile").


Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne won the ADG's inaugural William Cameron Menzies Award, for his work in championing classic movies. Accepting the award on his behalf (he was sick with a bad cold) was actress Diane Baker.
