19th Costume Designers Guild Awards Winners

Finally the last of the guilds announced their award winners last night and will not deny that I'm disappointed with the results as my favorite did not make it.  Sigh.

No doubt that the highlight of the night was when James Corden presented the Distinguished Collaborator Award to Meryl Streep.  Also with a guild award, Lilly Collins received the Spotlight Award from none other than Matt Bomer.

When we check what has happened during the last 10 years we find that one CDGA winner went to win 6 times the Oscar for costume design, four came from the period category and two from fantasy category.  So based on this data, we would expect next Oscar winner to be from period or fantasy categories but then when we check the Oscars nominees, surprise(!) CDGA winners in those categories, Hidden Figures and Doctor Strange, do not have nominations!  So, reality says that Oscar winner will not come from those two categories and perhaps CDGA Contemporary category winner could get it.

Then we have to consider first,  Oscar voting already closed yesterday -no winner influence-; second, this guild has not too-many Academy voters, and three, there is always a possibility with the vote of Academy members, my favorite could win (lol).   Seriously, I saw nothing spectacular in La La Land costumes,  Allied and Florence Foster Jenkins costumes were acceptable, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them costumes were not as great as for example, Doctor Strange; which leaves Jackie with great costumes that showcase very-well known dresses and costumes.

Anyway back to CDGA winners, to check all winners you can go to official site here where winners will be eventually or go to official twitter here that has all last night winners.

Winners are below in *BLUE.
