Costume Designers Guild Awards Put ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ ‘Aquaman,’ ‘The Favourite’ on the Best-Dressed List

Other nominees include ”Crazy Rich Asians,“ ”BlacKkKlansman,“ ”Mary Queen of Scots“ and ”Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again!“


The Costume Designers Guild has nominated 15 different movies for the 21st Costume Designers Guild Awards, singling out two films about the Stuart line of English monarchs, two based in the rock and funk of the 1970s, three about superheroes and others about Abba-singing lovers, female thieves and crazy rich Asians.

In the CDGA’s Excellence in Period Film category, the nominees are “BlacKkKlansman,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “The Favourite,” “Mary Poppins Returns” and “Mary Queen of Scots.”

In Excellence in Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film, the guild nominated “Aquaman,” “The Avengers: Infinity War,” “Black Panther,” “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” and “A Wrinkle in Time.”

And in Excellence in Contemporary Film, the nominees are “Crazy Rich Asians,” “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” “Ocean’s 8,” “A Star Is Born” and “Widows.”

Sandy Powell received two nominations, one for “The Favourite” and one for “Mary Poppins Returns,” both in the period-film category.

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.

Last year, three of the five Oscar nominees were first nominated by the CDG, two from the period category and one from the fantasy category.

Since the CDG split into its separate contemporary, period and fantasy categories in 2005, nominees in its period category have gone on to receive 36 Oscar nominations and 10 wins. The fantasy category has yielded 11 nominees and three winners, while the contemporary category has only resulted in three Oscar nominees and no winners in 12 years.

In the four television categories, nominees included “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” “The Romanoffs,” “Sharp Objects,” “The Alienist,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events,” “Westworld,” “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

The winners will be announced on Feb. 19 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
