Darlings, because we all love good costume design around here, we thought we’d let you know the big winners at last night’s Costume Designer’s Guild Awards.
Excellence in Contemporary Television
The Handmaid’s Tale – Ane Crabtree
This was probably a no-brainer. That look has not only become iconic, it’s become a symbol of real-world responses to anti-woman attitudes and initiatives.
Excellence in Sci-Fi / Fantasy Television
Game of Thrones – Michele Clapton
Can’t really argue with this one, either. If nothing else, Daenerys’ winter dragon coat probably sealed the deal. Probably the single-best (and most discussed) costume design in all of television in the past year.
Excellence in Period Television
The Crown – Jane Petrie
Well, duh. Check out our examination of the show’s costumes in our “The Crown Style” feature.
Excellence in Contemporary Film
I, Tonya – Jennifer Johnson
Not sure how this rates as a “contemporary” film, since most of it takes place at least 25 years ago. Still, the costume-design was first rate. You can hear our review of it here.
Excellence in Sci-Fi / Fantasy Film
Wonder Woman – Lindy Hemming
The Amazon’s costumes were simply brilliant and fit perfectly within the non-exploitative, feminist perspective of the film. You can read our review here.
Excellence in Period Film
The Shape of Water – Luis Sequeira
Yet another instance of this film being wildly overpraised, in our opinion. You can hear what we thought of the film here.
Excellence in Short Form Design
P!NK: “Beautiful Trauma” Music Video – Kim Bowen
Who can argue with that?
