Oscar Nominees: Best Costume Design

My predictions: 3/5
My ballot: Coming soon!
The nominees: Emma, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Mank, Mulan, Pinocchio

Not too many surprises here, but I am disappointed to see “Promising Young Woman” left off and thought that “The Personal History of David Copperfield” could get in. Instead, two films I underestimated here but expected in other categories - Mulan and Pinocchio - got in, which I’m fine with since the work there was impressive. I’m happy that Trish Summerville, who I spoke to about Mank, is a nominee, along with Ann Roth, who I heard about repeatedly from other crew members on Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Rounding out the list is Emma, which is certainly a formidable costuming effort.

My current bet to win: I think Emma can win.
