As 27 of our 29 Experts predicted, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” won Best Costume Design on Sunday night. It had previously won Costume Design honors from BAFTA and Critics’ Choice, as well as the Costume Designers Guild prize for Best Period Design.
This was the fourth Oscar win for costume designer Milena Canonero, who received previous honors for “Barry Lyndon” (1975), “Chariots of Fire” (1981), and “Marie Antoinette” (2006). She was also nominated for “Out of Africa” (1985), “Tucker: The Man and His Dream” (1988), “Dick Tracy” (1990), “Titus” (1999), and “The Affair of the Necklace” (2001) for a career total of nine nominations.
The film was the 2/13 favorite with 27 Experts backing it: Thelma Adams (ZEALnyc), Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes), Kyle Buchanan (Vulture), Edward Douglas (Coming Soon), Scott Feinberg (Hollywood Reporter), Thom Geier, Pete Hammond (Deadline Hollywood), Michael Hogan (Vanity Fair), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Scott Mantz (Access Hollywood), Mary Milliken (Reuters), Michael Musto (Out.com), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Kevin Polowy (Yahoo), Steve Pond (The Wrap), Claudia Puig (USA Today), Jenelle Riley (Variety), Christopher Rosen (Huffington Post), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), Keith Simanton (IMDb), Nicole Sperling (Entertainment Weekly), Sasha Stone (Awards Daily), Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Jeffrey Wells (Hollywood Elsewhere), Glenn Whipp (LA Times) and Susan Wloszczyna (RogerEbert.com).
The Disney musical “Into the Woods,” which had won Best Fantasy Design at the Costume Designers Guild Awards, was in second place in our predictions with 12/1 odds and the support of two Experts: Mike Cidoni (Associated Press) and Dave Karger (Fandango).
