‘Shameless’ Star Emmy Rossum to Host Costume Designers Guild Awards

Possessing a little expertise when it comes to wearing, retagging and returning outfits from her “Shameless” role, Emmy Rossum will host the 17th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards, to be held Feb. 17 at the Beverly Hilton.

Naomi Watts has been selected as the recipient of the Lacoste Spotlight Award. The prize honors an actor whose talent and career personify an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design. Watts recently appeared in “St. Vincent” with Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy, as well as Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “Birdman” with Emma Stone and Michael Keaton. Her upcoming films include “Demolition” with Jake Gyllenhaal as well as “Divergent” sequel “Insurgent,” and Gus Van Sant’s “Sea Of Trees” opposite Matthew McConaughey.

Richard Linklater will receive the guild’s Distinguished Collaborator Award, honoring his support of costume design and creative partnership with designers. Linklater worked with costume designer Kari Perkins on the 12-year epic “Boyhood,” as well as his previous films “Bernie,” “A Scanner Darkly” and “Fast Food Nation.”

Harrison Ford will present the career achievement award to costume designer Aggie Guerard Rodgers, whose first film was George Lucas’ “American Graffiti.” Her career includes “The Conversation,” “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” “Star Wars: Episode VI — Return of the Jedi,” “Beetlejuice,” “The Fugitive” and, most recently, “Fruitvale Station.” She was nominated for the best costume design Oscar in 1985 for “The Color Purple.”

Costume designer and scholar Deborah Nadoolman Landis will receive the the 2015 Edith Head Award for the Advancement and Education of the Art of Costume Design. Landis is a two-time former president of the guild who has authored a number of books on costume design for the screen. Her costume designer credits include “The Blues Brothers”; “Raiders of the Lost Ark”; “Trading Places”; “Coming to America,” for which she was nominated for the costume design Oscar; and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video.
