Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Costume Design

The competition: Allied (Joanna Johnston), Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Colleen Atwood), Florence Foster Jenkins (Consolata Boyle), Jackie (Madeline Fontaine), La La Land (Mary Zophres)

Previous winners: Mad Max: Fury Road, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Great Gatsby, Anna Karenina, The Artist, Alice in Wonderland, The Young Victoria, The Duchess
My winner: To be announced soon!
The facts: Atwood has twelve nominations and three wins, most recently for “Alice in Wonderland” in 2010. This is the second nomination for Boyle, Johnston, and Zophres. This is the first nomination for Fontaine. The CDG Awards have not been handed out yet, but all but “Allied” contend there across three separate categories.

Who should win: I haven’t seen “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” unfortunately, but this is one place where I’d be okay with “Florence Foster Jenkins” or “Jackie” winning. I wouldn’t vote for “Allied,” and I’m still picturing all the costumes in my choice, “La La Land.”
Who will win: It could be “Jackie,” but I still think La La Land will win here.
