The Costume Designers Guild Feature Film categories are divided into Science fiction/Fantasy, Contemporary and Period categories. Since the CDGAs launched in 1999, the Oscar for costume design has gone to a period film every year, but twice – with only Mad Max: Fury Road (2016) and Black Panther (2019) against the trend. True to form, four of this year’s five Oscar nominees take place in the past. The fifth, Dunes, is in the far future.
Last year, the best CDGAs went to Promising young woman (Contemporary), Mulane (Sci-Fi/Fantasy) and eventual Oscar winner Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (Period).
CDG – IATSE Local 892 – includes more than 1,000 costume designers and illustrators working in film, television, commercials, music videos and new media programs around the world.
