When production designer Sam Lisenco found out that Judas and the Black Messiah had been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, he happened to be on the phone with director Shaka King.

“The two of us just started screaming,” Lisenco tells AD. “And I was like, ‘All right, you have phone calls to make,’ and hung up on him. Crazy morning. I’m really happy—it’s a story that needed to be told.”
