The Art Directors Guild has awarded "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" the Excellence in Production Design Award for a Feature Film and the Outstanding Contribution to Cinematic Imagery Award:

The creative team for the entire Harry Potter skein, which has grossed more than $7 billion worldwide for Warner Brothers, received the outstanding contribution to cinematic imagery award at the dinner. The large Harry Potter contingent swarmed the stage to receive the prize handed out by Tinker Tailor star Gary Oldman (Sirius Black).
This was the first time the full complement of creators behind a film – including author J.K. Rowling, the producers, directors, screenwriters and production designer Craig – has received the prestigious ADG special honor. Past winners include actors Warren Beatty and Clint Eastwood, and directors Steven Spielberg and Robert Wise.

Very glad they won this, it is so well deserved, congratulations to everyone involved in designing and creating sets, props, creatures and special effects (and anything else that is part of production design) It has been a mammoth task which has been done with enormous attention to detail and real faithfulness to Jo’s world and brought it to life for us all.
