Last year, the Oscar for Best Costume Design was awarded to Best Picture-winner "The Artist." This year there are two Best Picture contenders in the running: "Les Miserables" and "Lincoln," though neither film gets best odds to win this competitive race full of extravagant designs.

"Anna Karenina"
The 19th century literary adaptation gets field-leading 8/5 odds from our predictors. 21 out of 25 experts, seven out of nine editors, and 78% of users predict it will win.

Though mixed reviews hurt the film's chances in top categories, it has consistently won awards for its costumes, including BAFTA, Critics' Choice, and the Costume Designers Guild.

This is the third Oscar nomination for designer Jacqueline Durran, who previously earned bids for "Pride and Prejudice" (2005) and "Atonement" (2007), both also directed by Joe Wright.

"Les Miserables"
The epic musical ranks second with 10/3 odds. Three experts and 14% of users predict it will win.

The film's costumes earned nominations from BAFTA, Critics' Choice, and the Costume Designers Guild, losing all three to "Anna Karenina."

This is the first Oscar nomination for designer Paco Delgado.

"Mirror Mirror"
The opulent fantasy film ranks third with 11/2 odds. One expert, two editors, and 2% of users predict it will win.

Though Tarsem Singh's film won the Costume Designers Guild Award for fantasy film, it has received no other awards or nominations this season for its designs.

Designer Eiko Ishioka, who died of cancer in January 2012, won her only previous Oscar bid: "Dracula" (1992).

"Lincoln"
The political docudrama matches "Mirror Mirror" with 11/2 odds. 5% of users predict it will win.

The film earned costume nominations from BAFTA, Critics' Choice, and the Costume Designers Guild, losing all three to "Anna Karenina."

This is the first Oscar nomination for designer Joanna Johnston.

"Snow White and the Huntsman"
This darker interpretation of the "Snow White" fairy tale ranks last with 9/1 odds. 1% of users predict it will win.

The film earned costuming nominations from BAFTA, losing to "Anna Karenina," and the Costume Designers Guild, where it lost the fantasy film prize to "Mirror Mirror."

Designer Colleen Atwood is the most honored in this category. She has three wins out of nine previous nominations, most recently for "Alice in Wonderland" in 2010.
