Costume Designers Guild Announce Their Nominees

Warner Bros.

The Costume Designers Guild have announced their nominees for the best in film, TV, and short-form costume design for 2020, adding another notch to Dolittle’s robust tally of nominations! 

Jokes aside (although Dolittle was nominated), the CDG’s nominations help to paint the picture for what films we can expect to see nominated for the Best Costume Design award at the Oscars in just under two weeks. 

Among the nominees in the film categories we’ve got Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, Emma., Birds of Prey, Judas and the Black Messiah, and several more. 

The television categories include nominations for I May Destroy You, Bridgerton, Schitt’s Creek, Lovecraft Country, and, of course, Emily in Paris

Are the five Oscar nominees listed among these titles? It’s tough to say for sure, as most years the Academy tends to choose almost exclusively films that would qualify for the “Period Film” category at the CDGs. Yet still, one imagines your odds are better if you do see your film listed here. 

The 23rd annual Costume Designers Guild Awards will be live-streamed on Twitter (@CostumeAwards) at 5:30pm PT/8:30pm ET on April 13th.
