Oscar Nominees: Best Costume Design

My predictions: 2/5
My ballot: Come back later this week!
The nominees: The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Little Women, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

This represents one of my worst categories this year in terms of accurate predictions. So much for “Dolemite Is My Name,” “Downton Abbey,” and “Hustlers,” three films that I thought would show up here and possibly in another category or two and ended up getting shut out. Instead, we’re left with a list of Best Picture nominees. Little Women makes the most sense as a nominee, and I can understand the appeal of the rest, including the period look of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the many suits and casual outfits of The Irishman, the bright uniforms in Jojo Rabbit, and the muted dark colors of Joker. At least it’s a good list, even if many other films should have made the cut.

My current bet to win: I’ll pick Little Women here even if that might be unwise.
