     goes behind the scenes of the films up for the prize for achievement in production design at the 2020 Academy Awards

    The cinema last year provided a wealth of different designs—from the muddy trenches, endless battlefields, and burned-out villages of World War I England; to the modernist, secret-filled home of a wealthy Korean family; to the ornate, baroque villages of ’30s Germany set against a backdrop of Nazi propaganda; the Hollywood of the ’60s, where nostalgia and pop culture reigned supreme; and finally, to gangster haunts as seen over five decades.
