Period and fantasy always have an advantage over contemporary in the Oscar costume universe. The Costume Designers branch, more than many others, is often willing to go their own way (remember winner “Priscilla: Queen of the Desert”?)

Contenders are listed in alphabetical order:

Frontunners

Colleen Atwood (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”)

Consolata Boyle (“Florence Foster Jenkins”)

Madeline Fontaine (“Jackie”)

Joanna Johnston (“Allied”)

Mary Zophres (“La La Land”)
