As the final guilds begin weighing in before Tuesday’s Oscar nominations are announced, the Costume Designers Guild (CDG) has announced their nominees in three motion picture categories and the only film among my current predictions in the category not included is Sonia Grande for Midnight in Paris.
Looking over the last couple years of nominations from the CDG it looks as if the last three years have always delivered one film that ended up nominated for an Oscar that was not nominated by the CDG. Could Midnight in Paris be that one? I do have Arianne Phillips just below the bubble line for her work on W.E. as well as Sharen Davis for her work on The Help.
As a result of these nominations and just the shift I feel in the winds, I have updated my predictions for Best Costume ever so slightly, which is to say Jane Eyre is no longer my prediction to win. You can check out my newly updated predictions for Best Costume right here and the 2012 Costume Designers Guild nominees directly below.
