Costume Designers Guild Announces Their 2013 Nominees

A little late to the party

Costume Designers Guild AwardOnce again a batch of guild nominees come in following the Oscar nominations, which doesn't exactly make them all that interesting. At least not for me as I'm more interested in predicting the Oscar winners than who actually wins these awards. As such, featured below are the nominees for the 2013 Costume Designers Guild Awards for excellence in period, contemporary and fantasy films.

To no surprise, all five Oscar nominees -- Anna Karenina, Mirror Mirror, Lincoln, Les Miserables and Snow White and the Huntsman -- are among the 15 nominees, not one coming from the contemporary category, which, again, isn't at all surprising.

At this point I have Jacqueline Durran's work in Anna Karenina predicted to win the Oscar and the late Eiko Ishioka (Dracula) the runner up for her work on Mirror Mirror.

The Costume Designers Guild Awards will be held on Tuesday, February 19, the last guild awards to be held before the Oscars on Sunday, February 24.

    WHERE'S DJANGO!!!! I think it should have gotten in over Argo, but Argo's costumes were impressive. I would have really liked to see Django get in, and the only other complaint is I would have liked to see TDKR or The Avengers in before The Hunger Games.

      I don't think the costumes for TDKR stand out at all, so I will disagree with you there, though an argument certainly could be made for the Avengers. I agree that Django definitely deserves to be in there, in my opinion over Argo.
