Costume Designers Guild Nominations include ‘Boyhood’, ‘Interstellar’, and ‘Selma’


W2xD8sVSomewhat in the shadow of the same day announcement of the Writers Guild of America nominations, the Costume Designers Guild also announced their awards nominations. Go figure too, I’d argue that the costume designers came up with a slightly better list of nominees than the writers did. As always, these nominations are split between three film categories: Contemporary, Fantasy, and Period. Among the Contemporary nominees, we have the likes of Boyhood, Gone Girl, and Interstellar (interesting that it’s here and not in a different category).

Among the Fantasy nominees, we have Guardians of the Galaxy, Into the Woods, and Maleficent. Among the Period nominees, we have The Grand Budapest Hotel, Inherent Vice, and Selma. Even just among those I mentioned, that’s a pretty strong lineup, right? The 15 nominees here will be likely what gets whittled down to the final five with Oscar, so take note of them. You can see all of the nominees for the Costume Designers Guild Awards below, and stay tuned to see who wins the prizes on February 17th. This should be a close race all around, filtering right down to the Academy Awards.
