Thread to discuss the Costume Design category.
Costume Designers Guild nominees:
HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES
RED RIDING HOOD
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
I think the period nominees will be the oscar cominees maybe with another period piece suprising with a nomination.
I can see this winning already.
Too bad “Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy”. Great costume design work, that actually serves character construction and world building.
Academy Award nominees:
I’m thinking “The Artist” wins, but Arianne Phillips could surprise.She’s been nominated before for “Walk The Line” and has worked on the industry for a while now (I particularly like her work on “A Single Man”). But the I expected for voters to fall head over heels over the old hollywood glamour work on “The Artist”.
Too bad “Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy” couldn’t get in. It’s was a more subtle work, but very strong and it built that world and those men.
