Orange BAFTA Film Awards: The Costume Nominees

We are just under a week away from the Orange BAFTA Film Awards so now seems an appropriate time to consider who might win the prize for Best Costume Design (it will be a period drama) and why (because all the nominations are). We should again clarify that Clothes on Film enjoy period and fantasy costume just as much as contemporary, But we do consider it a shame that the latter category is often overlooked by simple virtue of being too good to be seen.

If you have been taking advantage of Orange Wednesdays (and who doesn’t?), i.e. texting Film to 241 from any Orange mobile to get two-for-one cinema tickets, you will hopefully have seen most, if not all of these BAFTA costume design

It’s been all go with award nomination announcements for costume design over the past two weeks. Here is our round-up of the big three: BAFTA, Cdg and Oscar.

First up the BAFTA (British Academy of Film & Television Arts) Film Awards:

The ArtistMark Bridges

Jane Eyre – Michael O’Connor

Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy – Jacqueline Durran

Perhaps the most surprising nomination, even though it shouldn’t be, is Jacqueline Durran for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Overruling the costumers’ chapter vote for Anonymous (Lisy Christl), general voters chose Tinker, Tailor instead – and with good reason. Critic Guy Lodge goes into detail about the film’s costumes in this article, so we’ll not tread on his toes. One

Great Costuming... According to Costume Designers

The Costume Design Guild has spoken! As with all guild awards... it's a combination of "Really?" and interesting "Oh, yeah!" choices.

Clothes Horse Royals in "W.E." via Arianne Phillips

Period Films

Mark Bridges for The Artist

Michael O'Connor for Jane Eyre

Sharen Davis for The Help

Sandy Powell for Hugo

Arianne Phillips for W.E.

Good news: I have an interview coming up with Arianne Phillips, who is one of my heroes. And not just because she's worked with Madonna for 15 years or so.  

Notable Omissions: Anonymous, Captain America (unless they considered it a fantasy), My Week With Marilyn, A Dangerous Method, and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

Oscar transferrence? The costume designers within the Academy, a much smaller number than votes on the guild awards, tend to prefer period work to other types of work so you could theoretically see all of these nominees repeat at Oscar, though Phillips is certainly

X-men: First Class, Thor, and Hugo Among Costume Designers Guild Nominees

Though many are busy finalizing their predictions for the Best Actor and Best Picture Oscar categories, the Costume Designers Guild today announced nominees for excellence in wardrobe. The nods are split into three categories: contemporary, fantasy, and period. Among the films singled out are superhero fare like X-Men: First Class and Thor, blockbusters franchises Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and dramatic critical favorites like Drive and The Descendants. Personally, I’m thrilled to see the excellent work in X-Men: First Class singled out, and I’m still waiting for a reasonably priced way to own Ryan Gosling’s ridiculously cool jacket from Drive. Hit the jump to see the full list of nominees. The winners will be announced on February 21st, and the nominees for the upcoming 84th Annual Academy Awards will be revealed this coming Tuesday, January 24th. Here

2012 Oscar Predictions: Costume Designers Guild Nominees Announced

As the final guilds begin weighing in before Tuesday's Oscar nominations are announced, the Costume Designers Guild (Cdg) has announced their nominees in three motion picture categories and the only film among my current predictions in the category not included is Sonia Grande for Midnight in Paris. Looking over the last couple years of nominations from the Cdg it looks as if the last three years have always delivered one film that ended up nominated for an Oscar that was not nominated by the Cdg. Could Midnight in Paris be that one? I do have Arianne Phillips just below the bubble line for her work on W.E. as well as Sharen Davis for her work on The Help. As a result of these nominations and just the shift I feel in the winds, I have updated my predictions for Best Costume ever so slightly, which is to say Jane Eyre

Bridesmaids Q&A: Comedy Costume

Digg this! Stumble upon something good? Share it on StumbleUpon Tweet This! Share this on Facebook Post on Google Buzz

Exclusive to Clothes on Film, Leesa Evans explains the tricky art of dressing six very different comic characters in Bridesmaids, i.e not overselling the humour.

Leaning primarily to comedy, Leesa Evans has been lead costume designer on over twenty films, including American Pie (1999) and Josie and the Pussycats (2001). She has also worked with producer Judd Apatow several times, e.g. Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008), Get Him to the Greek (2010) and now Bridesmaids (2011, directed by Paul Feig). “I have a great working relationship with Judd Apatow,” Evans confirms “When he asked me to design the film I was thrilled to do it”.

Crammed with about as much riotous cringe humour as anyone could take, Bridesmaids centres on lovesick and near penniless Annie (Kristen Wiig), maid of honour to lifelong best friend
