Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Costume Design

The competition: Cruella (Jenny Beavan), Cyrano (Massimo Cantini Parrini and Jacqueline Durran), Dune (Jacqueline West and Bob Morgan), Nightmare Alley (Luis Sequeira), West Side Story (Paul Tazewell)

Previous winners: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Little Women, Black Panther, Phantom Thread, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Grand Budapest Hotel
My winner: Coming soon!
The facts: This is the eleventh nomination for Beavan, who won for “A Room with a View” and “Mad Max: Fury Road.” This is the eighth nomination for Durran, who won for “Anna Karenina” and “Little Women.” This is the fourth nomination for West, who was previously nominated for “Quills,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” and “The Revenant.” This is the second nomination for Parrini and Sequeira, who were previously nominated for “Pinocchio” and “The Shape of Water,” respectively. “Cruella” defeated all of these nominees aside from “Dune,” which won its own category, at the Costume Designers Guild Awards.
Who should win: “Cruella”
Who will win: It’s far from a guarantee, but Cruella could actually take down “Dune” here.
