oscars_19_Felipe Fernández del Paso Hania Robledo

If you loved the look of Salma Hayek’s Frida, you should thank art director Felipe Fernández del Paso and set decorator Hania Robledo. The dynamic duo, who earned a Best Art Direction nomination for their work, were the masterminds behind the production design of the film, which the American Film Institute named as one of their Movies of the Year 2002, Official Selection. Their rationale: “Frida is a movie about art that is a work of art in itself. The film's unique visual language takes us into an artist's head and reminds us that art is best enjoyed when it moves, breathes and is painted on a giant canvas, as only the movies can provide.”

Best Art Direction, Frida, 75th Academy Awards, Nominated
