With no Oscars shortlist for the Costume Design category, the Costume Designers Guild’s nominees are as close as we’re going to get before the Academy releases their nominees on March 15th. “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” has to be the favorite going in. Ann Roth won for her work in “The English Patient” and was nominated three other times. “Mank” and “Emma” seem like safe bets as well. Some films that don’t seem that popular, like “Birds of Prey” or “Mulan,” are definitely still in the race. I also wouldn’t count out “Wonder Woman 1984,” despite the hatred toward that film.
