2015 Oscar Predictions – Best Costume Design

2015 OSCAR PREDICTIONS: BEST COSTUME DESIGN

(UPDATED: JULY 1, 2014)

This is one of a few categories that it doesn’t matter how bad your film is received, you can still wiggle  your way into a lineup, and even win.  Right now, Into the Woods has everything going for it but the likes of Exodus: Gods and Kings or MacBeth can break up that party.
