Natalie PortmanUPDATED – FEBRUARY 23, 2017 – OSCAR NOMINEES – This is a two-horse race between “La La Land” and “Jackie.”  BAFTA matched up with BFCA with “Jackie.”  The Costume Designers Guild gave it to “Hidden Figures” over “Jackie” though.  Granted, it happened after ballots were in.  Did it mean anything?

  • No #AgeOfAdeline?

  • Risky placing Sharen Davis at #1. The Academy scarcely takes note of her gorgeous work, unfortunately.

  • Josamaroo

    Hello has anyone seen The Witch? Fantastic movie, set in the 1600’s and the costumes are the best part. Oh wait, it’s a horror film so obviously no one cares. I guess people these days like recognizing the same movies and actors/actresses over and over every year.

  • Jonathan

    The official costume designer for “Silence” is Dante Ferretti, not Sandy Powell.

  • Tobey

    Care to explain fantastic beasts going from the favourite to not nominated in one or two weeks?

  • PixarAnimator

    What happened to “Queen of Katwe”?

    • It came and went and nobody noticed it.

  • Bryce

    Fantastic Beasts
    Jackie
    La La Land
    Live by Night
    Rogue One

    If you are wondering why Rogue One makes it on my list, it is because if the use of the original costumes from the original trilogy (I think it will win a nom, but not the win). I have to go with a surprising choice and that is Fantastic Beasts. It gets the win because on how well they captured the clothing of 1920’s.

  • sailingsam

    You forgot Kubo and the two strings…..amazing costumes in mini form.

    • Jacques

      Lmao agreed one hundred percent. Although Zootopia could be a dark horse

  • Pokermask

    Here are my predictions for Best Costume Design at the moment:
    Allied (Joanna Johnston)
    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Colleen Atwood)
    Florence Foster Jenkins (Consolata Boyle)
    Jackie (Madeline Fontaine)
    La La Land (Mary Zophres)

    Top choice: La La Land

  • Jacques

    Allied, La La Land or Jackie please and thank you.

    • Jacques

      Also Nocturnal Animals was underrated

  • Calvin Damon

    If there was more love for Jackie then I think there would be a closer race, but I really can’t imagine La La Land losing this at this point. Especially if it sweeps the category along with virtually everything else at the BAFTAs. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are a few(or a lot of) Oscar voters who decide to check off La La Land for everything because of their overall love and passion for the film, which could end up in a Gosling or even a Sound Editing win.

  • life is a state of mind

    I hate to keep saying this, but I see La La Land’s snowball getting bigger and bigger as it rolls over the Oscar field. My dark horse pick: Colleen Atwood’s Fantastic Beasts. She’s an Academy fave with 12 noms and 3 wins.

  • Michael Eduard Gschwandtner

    Interesting fact: in the last 8 years, the winner of best “Costume Design” was always nominated for “Production Design” as well, in most cases a film won both. This favors “LaLaLand” and is not a good sign for Jackie. But it is just statistic, right?

    • Michael Eduard Gschwandtner

      It’s No 10 for LaLaLand now…Jackie lost to Hidden Figures at the CDG, and LaLaLand has the “Best Picture” Boost and the statistics I mentioned above.

  • Calvin Damon

    Well, the BAFTA win definitely complicates things. You can pretty much flip a coin whether Jackie or La La Land will win this category at this point. I’m still going with La La Land because I’m stubborn like that, but I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if it went to Jackie

  • Pablo

    Jackie was amazing in this category. It deserves it.
