The Costume Designers Guild has weighed in with their nominations in several categories. The Oscar five usually favor period, musicals and complexity over contemporary. Of this list, likely nominees are: Black Swan (although the actual designers of the ballet costumes are not the recognized designer); Burlesque, The King's Speech, True Grit and Alice in Wonderland. Personally, I'd go for the costumes in Inception over Burlesque--think Ken Watanabe's elegant waistcoat and Marion Cotillard's fabulous dresses--but this is how it will likely go.
