Oscar Nominees: Best Costume Design

My predictions: 4/5, picking “The Help” over “W.E.”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Anonymous, The Artist, Hugo, Jane Eyre, W.E.

This category was yet another place that Oscar voters’ lukewarm reception of the help – nominating it for Best Picture and acting only – was evident. I haven’t see three of these films, actually, and the other two are the nomination leaders. This is the only nomination for those three, and I’m not sure I have plans to catch any of them, though I’d imagine that the costumes are the best parts of those films. This category often goes to those films not nominated elsewhere, so it’s a toss-up for the win. I’m somewhat surprised that “Midnight in Paris” isn’t contending here.

My current bet to win: “Hugo” in a sweep over “W.E.”
