Oscar Nominees: Best Costume Design

My predictions: 2/5, picking only “Carol” and “The Danish Girl”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: Carol, Cinderella, The Danish Girl, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant

Congratulations! You have officially arrived to the only category that’s not a specialty one (animated, foreign, documentary) where I haven’t seen a film! “Cinderella” is next on my list since it made the cut here (it’s on DVD!), the only inclusion not to be a contender anywhere else. I actually did better here than last year, when I picked just one. It’s a relief that “Carol” and “The Danish Girl” are here, and it’s a shame that “Brooklyn,” “The Hateful Eight,” and “Trumbo” got knocked out to make room for “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Revenant,” which were apparently required to be nominated in every category. Decent costumes all around though, just not the best of the year.

My current bet to win: I see The Danish Girl winning here.
