    It’s no secret that period and fantasy costumes tend to win Oscars over contemporary/futuristic films with some exceptions, like “The Queen” and the fashion-heavy “Devil Wears Prada.” Have there been other more contemporary films that you think were wrongly snubbed just because they’re not as showy or obviously costume-y as the big costume dramas/fantasy epics?

    I’d say the AV Club made a pretty good argument for Her.

    Her is among the finest in a contemporary film. A prime example of how unfair and short sighted Oscar can be with those.

    Recently, I think The Secret Life of Walter Mitty had an outstanding costume design. Also Only Lovers Left Alive and Drive did great job in that department.

    Yes too to (500) Days of Summer and to Juno!
