The 2019 Costume Designers Guild Awards Nominations Are Here

The nominees for the 2019 Costume Designers Guild Awards, which will take place Feb. 19, were announced today — and many of the biggest blockbusters of the year made the list.

Major action hit “Black Panther” — which had otherworldly costumes that had fans going wild — is nominated in the sci-fi/fantasy category.

Fan-favorite “A Star Is Born” is nominated for the contemporary film category and will compete against “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” “Crazy Rich Asians,” “Ocean’s 8” and “Widows.”

A footwear brand, Adidas, also found itself among the list of nominees. The German sportswear giant was nominated in the short form design category for its “See My Creativity” commercial.

“Mary Queen of Scots” costume designer Alexandra Byrne is up for an award in the excellence in period film category. The Academy Award winner told FN in a previous interview that she wasn’t aiming for perfect accuracy when designing her costumes —  which is why she incorporated denim into her designs.

“The decision to use denim, part of the reason was for the costumes to have a modernity,” Byrne said.

Competing against her is “Mary Poppins Returns” designer Sandy Powell, who also spoke with FN. Powell explained that the sequel is set 20 years after the original film, meaning that Emily Blunt’s Mary Poppins costume need not perfectly mirror Julie Andrew’s. However, the iconic blue coat from the first film is featured in the sequel as well.
