EMMA

BEST COSTUME DESIGN
BEST MAKEUP AND HAIRSTYLING

Handsome, clever and rich, Emma Woodhouse is a restless queen bee without rivals in her sleepy little town. In this satire of social class and the pain of growing up, Emma must adventure through misguided matches and romantic missteps to find the love that has been there all along.

Apart from the performances, especially from Anya Taylor-Joy and Bill Nighy, “Emma” excels in costume design. With the film following a more prominent set of characters, Emma’s various costumes should have been enough to garner the nomination. Whether they’re at a ball or just strolling down the countryside, the costumes are stunning.

Pundits have “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” currently in the lead for winning the Oscar. The women’s flapper dresses and men’s suits were enough to make Ann Roth the winner of many critics’ awards. But if you ask me, “Emma” does a much better job in much more abundance. I may be predicting an upset in this category.

Makeup and Hairstyling is a tough category to predict. If the teams behind it are not making an actor or actress look utterly different from their usual appearance or making a boy look made out of wood, it’s hard to tell what goes into the makeup and hair. In “Emma,” making Anya Taylor-Joy the object of everyone’s affection revolves slightly around hair and makeup. Whether it’s her springy curls or rosy cheeks, she’s very agreeable. But how that could beat one of the other films, I’m not entirely sure. It could argued as ahead of “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” in this category as well, where Ma’s makeup looks painted on and, besides Chadwick Boseman’s parted hair, nothing else really sticks out.
