The costumes for “Barbie,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Maestro,” “Saltburn” and “Poor Things” are among the nominees for the 26th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards, which were announced Thursday.

Fifteen films, 21 television programs and five short-form projects were nominated by the guild, which will announce the winners on Wednesday, Feb. 21, at Neuehouse Hollywood.

In the Excellence in Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film category, the nominees were “Barbie,” “Haunted Mansion,” “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire.”

In Excellence in Period Films, the guild nominated “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Maestro,” “Napoleon,” “Oppenheimer” and “Poor Things.”

In recent years, the Costume Designers Guild has typically nominated three or four of the films that have gone on to receive Oscar nominations for Best Costume Design. Those nominees almost always come from the period and fantasy categories. For the last three years in a row, all five Oscar nominees had also been recognized by the CDG; last year, three were from the period category and two from the sci-fi fantasy one.

Nominees in the television categories include “The Bear,” “Beef,” “The Last of Us,” “The Crown,” “Daisy Jones & the Six,” “George & Tammy,” Ahsoka,” Loki: 1893,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” “The Masked Singer” and “Saturday Night Live.”

The only films or programs to receive multiple nominations were “The Masked Singer,” which took two of the five noms in the Excellence in Variety, Reality-Competition, Live Television category and “Haunted Mansion,” “The Hunger Games,” “Loki” and “Rebel Moon,” which were nominated in design categories and in the Excellence in Costume Illustration category.
