Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Costume Design

The competition: The Irishman (Sandy Powell and Christopher Peterson), Jojo Rabbit (Mayes C. Rubeo), Joker (Mark Bridges), Little Women (Jacqueline Durran), Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Arianne Phillips)

Previous winners: Black Panther, Phantom Thread, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Great Gatsby, Anna Karenina
My winner: Dolemite Is My Name
The facts: This is Powell’s fifteenth nomination after double bids last year for “The Favourite” and “Mary Poppins Returns.” She won in 1998 for “Shakespeare in Love,” in 2004 for “The Aviator,” and in 2009 for “The Young Victoria.” This is Durran’s seventh nomination, and she won in 2012 for “Anna Karenina,” earning double nominations in 2017 for “Beauty and the Beast” and “Darkest Hour.” Bridges won in 2011 for “The Artist” and in 2017 for “Phantom Thread,” and was also nominated in 2014 for “Mr. Turner.” Phillips was nominated in 2005 for “Walk the Line” and in 2011 for “W.E.” At the Costume Designers Guild Awards, “Jojo Rabbit” defeated “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” and the other three films cited here weren’t nominated.

Who should win: “Little Women”
Who will win: It’s a competitive category. I’ll bet on Little Women, though it could easily be any of them.
