2023 Costume Designers Guild Awards Nominations

Posted on January 13, 2023

We apologize for being a day or two late in getting the Costume Designer’s Guild Award nominations, but seeing as how we’re a couple of big time costume design queens (and also because we just wrote a series of posts picking our faves of the year), we couldn’t let this one go by without comment. We had to pick a category under which to post this, so it’s listed under “Movies” even though the nominations also cover television

 

EXCELLENCE IN CONTEMPORARY FILM
Glass Onion: A Knives Out MysteryJenny Eagan
NopeAlex Bovaird
TárBina Daigeler
Top Gun: MaverickMarlene Stewart
Women TalkingQuita Alfred

It’s funny. We have picks for Glass Onion, Nope and Tár on our year-end list, but if we had to pick who should get an award for overall work, we keep coming back to Women Talking, which had some fine, highly subtle work that stuck in our minds for days after.

 

EXCELLENCE IN SCI-FI / FANTASY FILM
Avatar: The Way of WaterDeborah L. Scott
Black Panther: Wakanda ForeverRuth E. Carter
Everything Everywhere All at OnceShirley Kurata
Hocus Pocus 2Salvador Perez
Thor: Love and ThunderMayes C. Rubeo

 

WAKANDA FOREVER!

 

EXCELLENCE IN PERIOD FILM

Don’t Worry DarlingArianne Phillips

Mrs. Harris, of course.

Westworld: Generation LossDebra Beebe
What We Do in the Shadows: The WeddingLaura Montgomery
The Witcher: Blood Origin: Of Mages, Malice, and Monstrous MayhemLucinda Wright

We really loved the darkly evocative costume design of House of the Dragon, but The Rings of Power had more jaw-dropping looks per episode than any show – ever.

 

EXCELLENCE IN CONTEMPORARY TELEVISION

Euphoria: Trying to Get to Heaven Before They Close the DoorHeidi Bivens
Hacks: The Captain’s WifeKathleen Felix-Hager

Gotta give it to Hacks. Not just because we interviewed Kathleen, but because it was really great work in that episode.

The Crown: Ipatiev HouseAmy Roberts
The Gilded Age: Let the Tournament BeginKasia Walicka Maimone

Ditto for Kasia (who we also interviewed) doing stunning work on The Gilded Age.

 

EXCELLENCE IN VARIETY, REALITY-COMPETITION, LIVE TELEVISION

We don’t really have a dog in this hunt, but we’ll pick Drag Race out of a sense of loyalty.
