    GREAt to see Hugo, POtter and Bridesmaids…

  2. The Help. :3

    Amazing costumes.

  3. Thor! At last!

    Say what you want about the movie itself, I just love it. And anything that isn’t a nom for Art Desing and Costume will be a robbery… Asgard and the Asgardians look exactly as they should.

  4. Matt Neglia

    Drive should win for that iconic scorpion jacket alone

  5. I thik tht the period nominees will be the fie oscar nominees.

  6. My Week With Marilyn will be nominated for the Oscar instead of W.E.

  7. I’m kind of pissed.

    They ignored the best costumes of the year – created by Lisy Christl in “Anonymous”. Hell they even ignored Jill Taylor’s beautiful creations in “My Week With Marilyn”.

    Here’s hoping AMPAS membership will plug these two deserving costume designers.

    Haa, Bridesmaids again!!

  9. 14 Oscar nominations for Hugo!

  10. I doubt it. I’d say Best Picture, Directing, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Film Editing, Original Score, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Visual Effects, Make-up, Art Direction, Costume Design. That’s 12. Original Song is a possibility. What else? Kingsley won’t happen.

  11. @Matt Neglia are they selling any of those jackets? Hey maybe they could try selling it to Sting (Steve Borden) bet he would look really cool in it, and he could talk to Dixie Carter and TNA to endorse it.

  12. Seems about right. I would have liked to see Midnight in Paris, however.

    NGNG – Bridesmaids gets a Best Costume nomination

  13. @ James

    Let`s hope!! If Hugo campaign was better done, I`d be more confident but… how could Ben Kingsley miss every single award this year. It`s one of the best and most respected actors alive playing an iconic role in a very weak category. How could`t they campaign him properly?

    I`m predicting 12.
    Film, Directing, Screenplay, Editing, Cinematography, Costumes, Art Direction, Make-Up, Sound Ed., Sound Mix., V.Effects and Score

    The period could be Oscars lineup. I just would put My Week With Marilyn instead of W.E.

  14. Glad to see Jane Eyre making a guild list. I saw it for the first time this week and was quite impressed. If Spielberg’s name was attached and it was released at a later date, I think it would occupy quite a few nomination slates.

  15. Spielberg’s name is attached to War Horse and it didn’t help here. Another shocking snub for War Horse.

  16. I think there are seven films with a good chance at a Costume Design nomination. Five of them are the CDG’s Period nominees, the other two are The Iron Lady and My Week with Marilyn.

    The Artist
    The Help
    Hugo
    The Iron Lady
    Jane Eyre
    My Week with Marilyn
    W.E.

    If it’s not five of those seven, I’ll be surprised.

  17. Cool! Thanks for the post! Costume design is my ABSOLUTE favourite category (I think, at least). Glad to see Melancholia in the mix! Bet Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will beat it, but whatever..it’s the thought that counts, right?

    Just did a story on Arianne Phillips and her work in W.E….I could smell awards already…nice to see the nods starting to accumulate!

    If Hugo is nominated by the MPSE tomorrow, it will have hit every guild except SAG. Wonder if that’s broad enough support for a BP win. Tough to win without the actors, but still…

  19. So far, War Horse has not been considered in any guild. Quite a surprise.

  20. I hope “Hugo” gets this award at the Oscars.

  21. Poor Midnight in Paris, impossible to place since it fits under…….every category.

  22. @ Roberto

    Not in any guild? Do the PGA and ACE not count any more? I would have expected they’d be two of the top guilds. It has also appeared in the VES nominees.

  23. I guess Midnight in Paris gets snubbed due to placement confusion…is it period? fantasy? contemporary? who knows!?

  24. yay Jane Eyre & TGWTDT & Melancholia!& Thor! & Pirates!
    pleased
    very pleased

  25. Midnight in Paris should make the Oscar cut as well. Great costuming from different periods – quite a task for any costume designer in one film.
