‘Boardwalk Empire,’ ‘Glee’ cut above for Costume Designers Guild

The Costume Designers Guild also honored excellence in television at their 13th annual awardsfest Tuesday. John Dunn and Lisa Padovani — the talented twosome who crafted the costumes for the depression era drama “Boardwalk Empire” — stopped the two-year winning streak of Janie Bryant for recreating the look of the swinging sixties in “Mad Men.” They also beat reigning Emmy champ Joan Bergin (“The Tudors”).

The colorful costumes designed by Lou Eyrich for “Glee” won the contemporary prize for the second year in a row. And Cindy Evans, who was snubbed at the Emmys, prevailed for the TV movie “Temple Grandin.”
