Oscar Watch: Costume Guild Nominations and Picks

Photo of Anne Thompson By Anne Thompson | Thompson on Hollywood January 21, 2011 at 4:19AM

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.
