Oscar Nominees: Best Costume Design

My predictions: 3/5, picking “The Greatest Showman” and “The Post” over “Darkest Hour” and “Victoria and Abdul”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: Beauty and the Beast, Darkest Hour, Phantom Thread, The Shape of Water, Victoria and Abdul

So this is one of the two places “Victoria and Abdul” showed up, bouncing “The Greatest Showman,” which had to settle for a long song nomination. I haven’t seen “Beauty of the Beast” but plan to, and I’m not at all surprised it’s here. “Darkest Hour” and “The Shape of Water” are both great choices, as is “Phantom Thread.”

My current bet to win: Simply because of its subject matter, will it be Phantom Thread?
