Oscar Nominees: Best Costume Design

My predictions: 2/5 (my worst category), selecting only “Alice in Wonderland” & “The King’s Speech”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Alice in Wonderland, I Am Love, The King’s Speech, The Tempest, True Grit

Yay to “I Am Love” for placing here! Easily the most exciting nomination of all. Interesting that it booted “Black Swan” (though I guess that makes sense), “Burlesque” (reminiscent of the shut-out for “Hairspray” a few years ago) , and the completely snubbed “Made in Dagenham” (why? such a good film!). This is a good place for the otherwise unimpressive “The Tempest” to get recognized, along with period pieces and nomination leaders “The King’s Speech” and “True Grit.” “Alice in Wonderland” didn’t do badly either, earning three nominations in total.

My current bet to win: “Alice in Wonderland”
