Costume designers fashion film, TV nods

'Black Swan,' 'True Grit,' 'Inception' among film nominees

Casting a wide net over contemporary, period and fantasy creations, the Costume Designers Guild’s nominations for its 13th annual awards range from “Black Swan’s” tutus to “True Grit’s” Western duds.

In the contemporary feature category, Amy Westcott (“Black Swan”) is vying against Jeffrey Kurland (“Inception”), Michael Kaplan (“Burlesque”), Jacqueline West (“The Social Network”) and Ellen Mirojnick (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”).

For period film, Mary Zophres (“True Grit”) is competing with Jenny Beavan (“The King’s Speech”) and Mark Bridges (“The Fighter”).

In the fantasy realm, Colleen Atwood (“Alice in Wonderland”), Sandy Powell (“The Tempest”) and Michael Wilkinson and Christine Bieselin Clark (“Tron: Legacy”) will face off.

Since the CDG’s competitive awards were first handed out in 2000, the guild and the Academy’s picks have overlapped five out of 11 times, with the proviso that Acad voters tend to favor the more fanciful designs of period and fantasy pictures.

In contemporary TV, Chrisi Karvonides-Dushenko (“Big Love”), Randall Christensen, Daniella Gschwendtner and Steven Norman Lee (“Dancing With the Stars”), Lou Eyrich (“Glee”), Alix Friedberg (“Modern Family”) and Alonzo Wilson (“Treme”) face off. Period and fantasy contenders are John A. Dunn (“Boardwalk Empire”), Janie Bryant (“Mad Men”) and Joan Bergin (“The Tudors”).

In made-for-television and miniseries, Penny Rose (“The Pacific”), Cindy Evans (“Temple Grandin”) and Rita Ryack (“You Don’t Know Jack”) are pitted against one another.

In the commercial heat, the contenders are Aude Bronson-Howard (Chanel), Lisa Michelle Boyd (Dior), Julie Vogel (Dos Equis), Lydia Paddon (Netflix) and the designers behind Target’s “Black Friday” campaign, who are yet to be determined.

The winners will be unveiled at the guild’s awards gala Feb. 22 at the Beverly Hilton. Halle Berry, Julie Weiss, Joel Schumacher will receive honorary awards at the fete hosted by Kristin Davis.
