'Potter,' 'W.E.,' 'Dragon Tattoo' earn CDG kudos

Costume designers gave top honors to ”W.E.,” ”Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” and ”The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” at the 14th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton.

”W.E.” won in the period category; ”Potter” took home fantasy honors; and ”Dragon Tattoo” earned contemporary kudos.

”It’s amazing, I’ve never even won bingo,” said ”W.E.” costume designer Arianne Phillips, who is also an Oscar nominee for the project.

”Harry Potter’s” Jany Temime celebrated her collaborators when accepting her trophy. ”The costume design team was with me for those eight long years,” Temime said. ”But it was all so much fun.”

When ”Dragon Tattoo’s” Trish Summerville heard her name announced, her tablemates erupted in cheers. ”I really didn’t think I would win or I wouldn’t have worn this dress,” Summerville said.

In the TV categories ”Glee’s” Lou Eyrich and Jennifer Eve took the contemporary prize, ”Downton Abbey’s” Susannah Buxton won for miniseries and ”Boardwalk Empire’s” John A. Dunn and Lisa Padovani won for period outfits.

The CDG handed out honorary awards to long-time collaborators Clint Eastwood and Deborah Hopper; Kate Beckinsale received the Spotlight Award; and Marlene Stewart was given the Career Achievement in Film Award.

”Glee” winner Eyrich also collected her second trophy of the evening by accepting the Career Achievement in Television Award.

The show was hosted by ”Glee” star Jane Lynch.
