Thesps Anjelica Huston, Julie Andrews, Jeff Bridges, Jamie Lee Curtis, Geena Davis, Kelly Lynch and Rachel Griffiths were in attendance at the sixth annual Costume Design Guild Awards Saturday night at the Beverly Hilton.

Costume designer Durinda Wood received the award for excellence in a film, contemporary, for her work in “A Mighty Wind.”

Patricia Field garnered the award for costume design in television, contemporary for “Sex and the City,” while “Carnivale” costume designers Ruth Myers (pilot) and Terry Dresbach (series) nabbed the honor for television, fantasy/period.

The costume design, commercial kudo went to Nancy Steiner for her work for Bicardi & Coke.

Ngila Dickson, whose credits include costume design for “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” and “The Last Samurai,” was nominated for both films in the fantasy/period category. She wasn’t sure which of the films she was being honored for when her name was announced, but the guild honored the designer in the period/fantasy film category for her work on “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”

Costume designers Bernard Newman, Howard Greer, Robert Kalloch and Richard Hornung were each inducted into the Anne Cole Hall of Fame.

Noel Taylor received the award for career achievement in television. The Bulgari award for career achievement in film went to James Acheson. Tzetzi Ganev and Thomas Velasco received the Lacoste President’s award.

“Thirteen” helmer Catherine Hardwicke presented Holly Hunter with the Invicta distinguished actor nod. Hunter praised costume designers with whom she’d worked on various projects. “I found (each of my) characters through the costumes,” she said.

Thesps in the room seemed to be in agreement.

“You don’t have a character until you know how the character looks and what they will be wearing, so the costume designers are an integral part of movie making,” Huston said. “I don’t think there would be movies without them.”

Guild prexy (local) Dr. Deborah Landis said that not just fantasy/period pieces depend on costume designers but also contemporary films such as “Monster” and “Thirteen.” “Costumes are on every frame of film,” she said. “We transform movie stars into believable characters.”
