    There is only one film that feels like a “lock” to me in this category: Cinderella.

    Other films that I think are in strong contention are The Danish Girl, The Hateful Eight and Trumbo, maybe Suffragette?

    Perhaps Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

    Steve Jobs could get in as a contemporary design nominee, which they occasionally throw in.

    The costumes were the only good thing about that Alan Rickman movie that came out earlier in the year (A Little Chaos, I think it was called?).

    Crimson Peak, Pan, The Assassin, In the Heart of the Sea, Carol all seem like wild card possibilities….

    any other films with wonderful imaginative costumes or simply costumes that the academy might nominate???

    Suffragette isn’t in the Prediction Centre for Costume Design and I want to predict it. Can you add it please. Thanks.

    2915? I am not sure. 

    Maybe Spielberg’s distant descendant will win for a motion picture about future President Schlorp Robert Kirleoap III’s rise from the slums of Planet Kaplooshol to become the favourite to win the Earth presidency after a scandal with his housemaid Jill Fanbevider almost destroys his reptutation. Costume design by: Tyler the Awesome Guy XXXII, Esquire. 

    [EDIT: It said “2915 Best Costume Design” for a bit, but since they changed the title, they therefore ruined this joke. Thanks a lot!]

    The one to really look out for is Saint Laurent — they lost the rights to any original Yves Saint Laurent designs to a rival biopic so César winner Anaïs Romand (who did amazing stuff in Holy Motors) designed everything herself. It’s amazing work, and this branch loves designer movies like Coco Avant Chanel anyways. It really needs to be in the predictions center.

    If they go with one Sandy Powell, I can see them going with the bigger contender (Carol) over Cinderella — it’s also the better work. I’m predicting both but I’m pretty certain Carol is in. The Assassin can also show up here the way The Grandmaster did.

    BROOKLYN.

    It’s pretty much a showcase for Ronan to put on pretty dresses.

    Thanks for the heads up. That was just an oversight. “Suffragette” is in the predictions center now.

    Isn’t Sandy Powell the woman who (rightly so) shamed the academy for shrugging of contemporary costumes in favour of flashy ones? I hope she does win for Carol then.

    Like I said in the Cinematography thread, keep an eye for The Assassin here.

    Wait, how come The Assassin isn’t an option in the Predictions’ Center? That’s crazy.

    Crimson Peak, Cinderella, The Danish Girl, Carol, and Macbeth with Hateful Eight and Far From the Madding Crowd as the spoilers.

    To me of the strongest in this department this year has to be The Man from U.N.C.L.E..

    I think Cinderella is in, but I’m calling bullshit on its frontrunner status on this site. It’s a bit like Mirror Mirror or Maleficent – not enough Academy members will be bothered to watch a live-action fairytale remake/spinoff, no matter how good the costumes are. It’ll get the branch recognition and that’s it.

    To me the obvious frontrunner seems to be The Danish Girl; judging by the trailer it’s the one with the most flamboyant costumes out of the films the majority of voters are likely to watch.

    Quick question – I was just trying to hone my below the line predictions and noticed that I have both Carol and Cinderella getting in whose costumes were both designed by the same woman. Is it even within the rules for one woman to get nominated twice within the same year? If not, will voters go for the flashier fairytale or the more viable BP contender?

    I don’t think it would be a problem in and of itself. We’ve seen several categories where the same person is nominated for multiple films in the same year (Roger Deakins for Cinematography in 2007, Steven Soderbergh for Director in 2000). It seems like the acting categories might be the only one that have specific rules against it.

    Assassin is not eligible.
