“Mad Max: Fury Road” is the frontrunner with odds of 6/5 to win Best Costume Design at the Oscars on Sunday. This would be the second Oscar for costumer Jenny Beavan, who previously won for “A Room with a View” (1985).
Our official odds are derived from the predictions of 27 Expert film journalists along with our seven in-house Editors who cover awards year-round, the Top 24 Users who got the top scores predicting last year’s Oscars, the All-Star Users who did the best for the past two years combined and the thousands of entrants in our prediction contest who make up the largest (and often savviest) bloc of predictors.
Only 11 of our 27 experts think “Mad Max” will prevail in this close race: Pete Hammond (Deadline Hollywood), Dave Karger (Fandango), Scott Mantz (Access Hollywood), Jack Mathews (Gold Derby), Christopher Rosen (Entertainment Weekly), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), Keith Simanton (IMDB), Nicole Sperling (EW), Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood), Brian Truitt (USA Today) and Adnan Virk (ESPN).
Meanwhile, an even dozen experts are backing “Cinderella“: Thelma Adams (Gold Derby), Edward Douglas (Weekend Warrior), Joyce Eng (TV Guide), Tim Gray (Variety), Michael Hogan (Vanity Fair), Tariq Khan (Fox New), Michael Musto (Out.com), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Kevin Polowy (Yahoo), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Glenn Whipp (Los Angeles Times) and Susan Wloszczyna (RogerEbert.com).
Among the seven editors, five are forecasting “Mad Max”: Chris Beachum, Marcus James Dixon, Rob Licuria, Daniel Montgomery and Paul Sheehan. The other two — Matt Noble and Tom O’Neil — predict “Cinderella.”
Finally, 13 of our All-Star Users back “Mad Max,” nine predict “Cinderella” and two forecast “Carol.”
