    This is my second Swarm thread in a month but I’m new to the film. TCM really dug this one up from a strage place!

    How did it get nominated? Was the guy overlooked in the past? It is just standard clothes and uniforms for the police and fire people. Not even evening gowns like other disaster films.

    WTF?

    Paul Zastupnevich was a three time Oscar nominee for costume design. All nominations were for Irwin Allen productions (1972 The Poseidon Adventure, 1978 The Swarm and 1980 When Time Ran Out). Zastupnevich worked as Allen’s right hand for the majority of his career. He did run an exclusive and popular boutique for originally designed gowns. He served as President of the Costume Designer’s Guild for a few years in the early 1970s. Evidence indicates that he was well respected within the field.

    Quality of the movie had nothing to do with his work. I am sure voters were thinking that. Maybe some never saw Swarm and had no idea what it was.

    I never saw “When Time Ran Out”. Is that the last of the Irwin Allen films? I have to check it out.
