Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Costume Design

The competition: American Hustle (Michael Wilkinson), The Grandmaster (William Chang Suk Ping), The Great Gatsby (Catherine Martin), The Invisible Woman (Michael O’Connor), 12 Years a Slave (Patricia Norris)

Previous winners: Anna Karenina, The Artist, Alice in Wonderland, The Young Victoria, The Duchess, Elizabeth: The Golden Age
My winner: The Great Gatsby
The facts: Martin won for “Moulin Rouge” and was nominated for “Australia,” and returns for a third Baz Luhrmann collaboration. O’Connor won in 2008 for “The Duchess” and was nominated again in 2011 for “Jane Eyre.” Norris has five previous nominations, but this is her first mention since 1988. This category does tend to reward regal spectacles, though that’s not always the case.

Who should win: “The Great Gatsby”
Who will win: I think The Great Gatsby is ahead here as well.
