Final Predictions - Costume Design

“Alice in Wonderland” Colleen Atwood
“I Am Love” Antonella Cannarozzi
“The King's Speech” Jenny Beavan
“The Tempest” Sandy Powell
“True Grit” Mary Zophres

Should Win: I honestly have no idea.
Will Win - The King's Speech
Could Win - Alice in Wonderland
Commentary - Like Art Direction, this race has become increasingly tight, and even the best experts in the game are struggling over who is going to be the eventual winner.  While The Tempest and I Am Love managed to defy their odds (terrible film and foreign film, respectively), to score deserved nods in this category, they are going to be on the outside looking in. True Grit definitely has a chance, but my books this is a two way race between vastly different movies. Alice is going to be a tough contender, but it has a few things going against it: the movie itself wasn't that good (Although past winners in this category have proven that that is not necessarily a deterant), the fact that it is a fantasy film (only one has one in the last ten years and it last LOTR: ROTK in a sweep), and the fact that it is up against The King's Speech. It is the frontrunner for BP, a period piece, and a movie about monarchy. While I am a little shaky in this prediction, I think the Academy will go for it.

  1. I like “Alice in Wonderland” Colleen Atwood among these five movies. It has a nice costumes in the film.
