Icelandic Set Designer Awarded in Hollywood

Icelandic set designer Karl Júlíusson received an award for his set in The Hurt Locker during the Art Director Guild Awards held at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel on Saturday as the best set in a contemporary movie.

“It was surprising because the movie was made on a low budget,” Júlíusson told Fréttabladid. “But it is pleasing when such movies are noticed.”

The Hurt Locker was up against movies such as Angels & Demons, The Lovely Bones and The Hangover.
