Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Costume Design

The competition: Carol (Sandy Powell), Cinderella (Sandy Powell), The Danish Girl (Paco Delgado), Mad Max: Fury Road (Jenny Beavan), The Revenant (Jacqueline West)

Previous winners: The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Great Gatsby, Anna Karenina, The Artist, Alice in Wonderland, The Young Victoria, The Duchess, Elizabeth: The Golden Age
My winner: The Danish Girl
The facts: This year brings Powell, a double nominee, to twelve nominations. She has won three times, most recently in 2009 for “The Young Victoria.” In 1998 she was nominated for two films and managed to win. This is the tenth nomination for Beavan, who won in 1986 for “A Room with a View.” This is the West’s third nomination and Delgado’s second. The last time a fantasy film won in this category was “Alice in Wonderland” in 2010.

Who should win: I’d go with “The Danish Girl,” but these are all decent choices.
Who will win: This is one place where the two omnipresent films probably don’t stand a shot at winning. The Danish Girl seems like a good bet, though “Carol” could also win.
