Costume Designers Guild Puts ‘Jackie,’ ‘La La Land’ on Best-Dressed List

”Hidden Figures,“ ”Florence Foster Jenkins,“ ”Doctor Strange,“ ”Rogue One“ and ”Kubo and the Two Strings“ also score nods from CDG


“Jackie,” “Florence Foster Jenkins,” “La La Land” and “Hail, Caesar!” are among the 15 films that were nominated by the Costume Designers Guild as the best of 2016, the CDG announced on Thursday.

“Jackie,” “Florence Foster Jenkins” and “Hail, Caesar!” were nominated in the Excellence in Period Film category, along with “The Dressmaker” and “Hidden Figures.”

“La La Land” was nominated for Excellence in Contemporary Film, alongside “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie,” “Captain Fantastic,” “Lion” and “Nocturnal Animals.”

And the Excellence in Fantasy Film nominees are “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Doctor Strange,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and “Kubo and the Two Strings.”

The stop-motion epic “Kubo” is the first animated film ever nominated by the CDG.

Costume designers Mary Zophres and Colleen Atwood are each nominated for two separate films, Zophres for “La La Land” and “Hail, Caesar!” and Atwood for “Fantastic Beasts” and “Miss Peregrine’s Home.”

In the television categories, Michele Clapton was nominated for both “The Crown” and “Game of Thrones.”

In recent years, the Costume Designers Guild has typically nominated three or four of the films that will go on to receive Oscar nominees for Best Costume Design. Those nominees virtually always come from the period and fantasy categories.

CDG winners in the period category go on to win the Oscar about half the time; only one winner from the fantasy category, “Alice in Wonderland,” has taken the Oscar, and no winners from the contemporary category.

Television nominations include “Empire,” “Transparent,” “The Crown,” “Westworld,” “Game of Throes,” “The Man in the High Castle” and “Sleepy Hollow.”

The 19th Costume Designers Guild Awards will take place on Tuesday, February 21 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Actress and singer Mandy Moore will host.
