Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Costume Design

The competition: Bright Star, Coco Before Chanel, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Nine, The Young Victoria

Previous winners: The Duchess, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Marie Antoinette, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Aviator
My winner: Inglourious Basterds
Who should win: The Young Victoria
Who will win: Notice a trend developing over the past few years? Designing royalty seems to be all the rage in this category, and I’m therefore inclined to think that “The Young Victoria” will be the next winner. This could be the place where “Nine” takes home a prize, but it’s pretty much between the two of them. “Bright Star” and “Coco Before Chanel” aren’t nearly as showy, and unless voters really like visiting the visually mind-blowing “Imaginarium,” I don’t see that winning. Stick with the regal choice – two-time winner Sandy Powell (“The Aviator” and “Shakespeare in Love”) for The Young Victoria.
