Oscar Nominees: Best Costume Design

My predictions: 4/5
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Black Panther, The Favourite, Mary Poppins Returns, Mary, Queen of Scots

In this year’s unusual tendency of certain films not showing up in exactly the categories everyone thought they would, “Bohemian Rhapsody” is nowhere to be found here, along with “If Beale Street Could Talk,” a sadly more expected snub. Instead, we get The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, a decent choice here even if the film was far more uneven, and Mary, Queen of Scots, representing one of the film’s two total bids. Mary Poppins Returns did decently in the technical categories if not fantastically, and we have two very different Best Picture nominees here as well: Black Panther and The Favourite.

My current bet to win: I’m picking The Favourite over “Mary Poppins Returns.”
