The title is deceiving. By the wording I didn't expect to see Picture or Animated Picture, but rather the individual awards.

As a costume person I am surprised how late the costume design award came in. Twenty years after the production design! Oh wait, no I'm not surprised. Costume is always overlooked.

That is surprising. What had and has a bigger impact on the fashion industry than movies? Although the award usually seems to go to period or fantasy movies rather than contemporary ones. Anyway, I think everybody now realizes how important the correct look in all areas of design are to any production.

I feel like that lifetime achievement award probably ought to count.

I thought that too, but I guess technically it's not a category because it's not voted on and the award isn't given for a particular role or film?

I believe that the two sound categories are best sound editing and best sound effects editing. I don't remember a category called best "sound mixing".

That sounds like a personal problem. I think Awards Categories is pretty self-explanatory.

Considering that the name was changed quite recently to production design (it used to be either art direction/set design) I think that this one should be accepted.
