    Hi fellow Derbyites!

    I have a new video I finally compiled- my tribute of the 25 best films never nominated for the Best Costume Design Oscar. I pay particular attention to various styles, in particular modern movies that never got recognized due to the volumes of period pieces. I hope you enjoy and feel free to add your own spins!

    Great list, i just thought the costumes were kinda ”safe”

    I would add the Hunger Games film serie, specially Catching Fire. Boy, that is an outstanding costume and make up showcase!

    I like a lot of your choices, particularly Blue Jasmine and Clueless! I never realized Breakfast at Tiffanys and Far from Heaven weren’t nominated — the latter seems really weird as the branch has seen fit to nominate Sandy against herself for both Velvet Goldmine (against Shakespeare in Love) and Carol (against Cinderella). But I guess that was a pretty strong year, it’d be easy to say it could have replaced The Pianist (a pretty inspired nomination imo) but I’d rather have seen it replace The Hours.

    Some modern examples off the top of my head I would have liked to see nominated:
    The Cotton Club
    Farewell My Concubine
    The Fifth Element
    Party Monster
    The Fall
    A Single Man
    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
    Blancanieves
    Holy Motors
    Saint Laurent (Anaïs Romand made hundreds of original costumes for this since she didn’t have legal rights to real YSL designs. She also did Holy Motors ^^)

    Really fantastic list, in particular I like the fact you included Clueless and Sex and The City.

    Thanks for the feedback so far guys! I had fun doing this one. In fact, since I’ve pretty much exhausted my Acting homages and Best Movie lists, this was a nice beginning to new possibilities. I am considering doing Production Design, Cinematography and Music. Best Song, in particular, has been a VERY controversial category in years past- due to what qualifies, what doesn’t. I still get mad when I think how they disqualified Brokeback Mountain’s song because it played on the radio (!!!).

    Yeah, the Far From Heaven snub was absurd. Great work!

    Another terrific video Jas!

    I agree with your list….except for Sex and The City….aside from the actual designer wedding gowns, I would only consider wearing the other clothes for Halloween. But probably not…..

    Thank you Jas! Bring on some more!
