Costume Designers Guild Puts ‘Emma,’ ‘Mank’ on the Best-Dressed List

Television nominees include ”The Mandalorian,“ ”Snowpiercer,“ ”Emily in Paris,“ ”Bridgerton“ and ”The Queen’s Gambit“


The costume designers responsible for the frocks in “Emma.,” the suits in “Mank” and the ’70s duds in “Judas and the Black Messiah” have been nominated for the 23rd annual Costume Designers Guild Awards, the guild announced on Thursday.

Those three films will be competing against “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and “One Night in Miami” in the CDGA’s Excellence in Period Film category, one of three feature-film categories honored by the guild.

In the Excellence in Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film category, the nominees are “Dolittle,” “Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey,” “Mulan,” “Pinocchio” and “Wonder Woman 1984.” The Excellence in Contemporary Film nominees are “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar,” “Birds of Prey,” “Da 5 Bloods,” “Promising Young Woman” and “The Prom.”

Television nominees include “The Mandalorian,” “Snowpiercer,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” “I May Destroy You,” “Emily in Paris,” “Bridgerton,” “The Crown” and “The Queen’s Gambit.”

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, though, only two of the 15 CDG nominees ended up as Oscar nominees.

Winners will be announced at the CDGA ceremony on Tuesday, April 13. The show will be streamed live on Twitter beginning at 5:30pm PT/8:30pm ET.
