‘Dune,’ ‘Cruella,’ ‘Coming 2 America’ Win Costume Designers Guild Awards

Television winners include ”The Book of Boba Fett,“ ”Emily in Paris“ and ”Saturday Night Live“


“Dune,” “Cruella” and “Coming 2 America” have been named the best-dressed films of 2021 at the 24th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards, which took place on Wednesday night in Santa Monica.

“Cruella” won the award for Excellence in Period Film, the CDGA category that most closely corresponds to the Oscar for Best Costume Design. Other contenders in that category included three of its fellow Oscar nominees: “Cyrano,” “Nightmare Alley” and “West Side Story.”

“Dune,” which is also an Oscar nominee for its costumes, won the award in the Excellence in Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film category, while “Coming 2 America” won for Excellence in Contemporary Film.

In the 16 years since the guild began using its current categories, one of the CDGA winners has gone on to win the Oscar for Best Costume Design nine times, including last year with “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” The Oscar winner comes most often from the CDGA’s period category, which has produced eight winners overall (two of those in earlier years when the guild had only two film categories), followed by the sci-fi/fantasy category, with three.

The television awards went to “The Book of Boba Fett” (sci-fi/fantasy TV), “Emily in Paris” (contemporary TV) and “The Great” (period TV). The short-form award was won by Swarovski’s “Welcome to Wonderlab” commercial.

Also at the ceremony, actor Andrew Garfield received the Spotlight Award, while producers Amy Pascal and Rachel O’Connor won the Distinguished Collaborator Award. Costume designer Sharen Davis was given the Career Achievement Award.

The ceremony took place at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica and was hosted by Andrew Rannells and Casey Wilson.
