The Oscar Narrative: Final Predictions - Best Costume Design

Will Win - Anna Karenina

Could Win - Les Miserables, Snow White and the Huntsman, Lincoln and Mirror Mirror

Should Win - Mirror Mirror

Commentary - Lincoln and Les Miserables are the two Best Picture nominees, and their designers, both first time nominees, had to cloth a large amount of people. Snow White and the Huntsman's costumes were designed by the ever-popular Colleen Atwood, so they cannot be counted out. And, while some did not like Mirror Mirror as a film, no one can deny the beauty of the costumes designed by the late Eiko Ishioka. A sentimental vote is possible as well. But I think that three time nominee Jacqueline Durran will get her first win for the incredible costumes of Anna Karenina. I know that the film is not the most well-liked of the bunch, but in this category, voters have tended to toss aside prejudices and focus on the grandeur of the costumes. Anna Karenina fits the bill.
