21st Costume Design Guild Awards Winners

Last Tuesday, February 19, the guild announced the award winners for the current edition of the annual prizes. Winners suggest The Favourite and Black Panther are the Oscars front runners as Crazy Rich Asians doesn't have an Academy nomination.  When considering costumes in both movies, there is no doubt in my mind that Black Panther costumes grab a lot more the attention that those in The Favourite; but, there are some (mostly male) costumes in The Favourite that are truly work of art, so if any wins Oscar I'm okay with it.

Glenn Close was honored with the Spotlight Award, Betty Pecha Madden with Distinguished Award, Ryan Murphy with Distinguished Collaborator Award, and Ruth E. Carter with Career Achievement Award.

Winners are in *BLUE.  To check winners in all categories go official site here.

Yesterday the CDGA announced their nominations via twitter and up-to-this-moment they haven't upload any info to the official site, so will do post with info from awards twitter account opened by Jumpline Group, which is the executive producer of the awards ceremony. To check info at twitter go here or here for official site.

As soon as group uploads info will review the nominations and if necessary will correct them; also, will include the link to check all categories besides the motion picture ones listed here.

I would like to congratulate all of the nominees of the 2019 Costume Designers Guild Awards. This year, we are especially thrilled to include the nominees for our brand-new Variety, Reality-Competition, Live Television category. We look forward to celebrating the art of Costume Design and our honorees at our 21st awards gala.” said Salvador Perez, President of CDG Local 892.

As was previously announced, screenwriter, director and producer Ryan Murphy will be honored with the Distinguished Collaborator Award.  The awards ceremony host and honorees receiving recognition for Distinguished Service and Spotlight will be announced later this month.
