Art Directors Guild to honor Martin Scorsese

By Kyle Johnson,

The Art Directors Guild has announced that they will present director Martin Scorsese with the Cinematic Imagery Award.

In a press release, The ADG noted that Scorsese will be honored at the 18th Annual Art Directors Guild's Excellence in Production Design Awards on Feb. 8, 2014.

The Cinematic Imagery Award is presented to those whose work is full of rich visual aspects that draw people into going to the movies. ADG Council Chairman John Shaffner said, "The ADG has wanted Scorsese to accept this deserving honor since the earliest days of its inception."

He added, "We are beyond delighted that his schedule finally now allows him time to receive it! The ADG has always considered his hands-on pursuit of excellence of production design to equal all of the fine craftsmanship that goes into every aspect of all Martin Scorsese films."

Scorsese's long career includes such films as The Departed, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas, notes The Hollywood Reporter. His latest film, and another with actor Leonardo DiCaprio, The Wolf of Wall Street hits theaters Christmas Day.

Rick Carter will also be honored at the event for the Guild's Lifetime Achievement Award, while J. Michael Riva, Harper Goff and Robert Clatworthy will be inducted into the ADG's Hall of Fame.
