Oscar Nominees: Best Costume Design

My predictions: 1/5, picking only “Into the Woods”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: The Grand Budapest Hotel, Inherent Vice, Into the Woods, Maleficent, Mr. Turner

Oops. Sadly, this wasn’t the only time I got 1/5 this year, but it’s certainly lamentable. Oscar voters didn’t nominate “Belle,” “Fury,” or “Exodus: Gods and Kings” at all, and they decided somewhat puzzlingly that “The Imitation Game” didn’t belong here. I wouldn’t have ceded its spot to “Maleficent,” but that’s just me. “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is a given and “Mr. Turner” is a solid choice, and I’m actually really excited about “Inherent Vice,” which I think is a great pick here.

My current bet to win: Give it to Into the Woods, even though a couple of the other nominees would be pretty fun.
