The competition: Emma. (Alexandra Byrne), Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (Ann Roth), Mank (Trish Summerville), Mulan (Bina Daigeler), and Pinocchio (Massimo Cantini Parrini)

Previous winners: Little Women, Black Panther, Phantom Thread, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Great Gatsby
My winner: Coming soon!
The facts: Byrne was previously nominated for “Mary Queen of Scots” in 2018, “Finding Neverland” in 2004, “Elizabeth” in 1998, and “Hamlet” in 1996. She won for “Elizabeth: The Golden Age” in 2007. Roth was nominated in 2002 for “The Hours,” in 1999 for “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” and in 1984 for “Places in the Heart.” She won in 1996 for “The English Patient.” The other three contenders are all first-time nominees. At the Costume Designers Guild Awards, “Mulan” defeated “Pinocchio” in the sci-fi/fantasy category, and “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” beat “Emma” and “Mank” in the period race. Make sure to check out my interview with Trish Summerville about her incredible work in “Mank” if you haven’t already.
Who should win: “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”
Who will win: It looks like 89-year-old Roth will triumph for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
