Oscar Nominees: Best Costume Design

My predictions: 3/5
My ballot: Coming soon!
The nominees: Cruella, Cyrano, Dune, Nightmare Alley, West Side Story

Here we have the lone bid for Cyrano, a film that could likely have performed a lot better had it actually been released. It’s not my favorite choice in this category, which would likely be Cruella, but I’m fine with it being here. It did manage to knock out “House of Gucci,” the first bad sign for a film that ended up with one measly nomination after some thought it would be a Best Picture nominee. Nightmare Alley is a great choice to join Dune and West Side Story, two other Best Picture nominees that created fresh looks for preexisting material with plenty of passionate fans.

My current bet to win: This will probably go to West Side Story, but I’d be thrilled if “Cruella” won.
