2020 Costume Designers Guild Awards nominations: Oscar frontrunner ‘Once Upon a Time’ plus ‘Dolemite,’ ‘Downton Abbey,’ ‘Rocketman’ …

Four of our five predicted nominees for Best Costume Design at the Oscars — “Dolemite is My Name,” “Downton Abbey,” “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and “Rocketman” — reaped bids for the Costume Designers Guild Awards. While our fifth contender — “Little Women” — was snubbed, fans of that film should take heart from the fact that the CDG awards often overlook one of the eventual Academy Awards nominees.

The winner of a CDG prize tends to repeat at the Oscars as was the case last year with “Black Panther.” But in 2018, “The Shape of Water” won with the guild while “Phantom Thread” prevailed at the Oscars. And in 2017, the academy went with the fantasy film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” which had lost at the guild to the Oscar-snubbed “Doctor Strange.”

The 22nd edition of these kudos, which also honor costume design in television and commercials, will take place at the Beverly Hilton on Jan. 28.
