‘Greatest Showman,’ ‘Young Pope,’ ‘Phantom Thread’ Earn Costume Designers Guild Nominations

Industry favorites “The Shape of Water,” “Dunkirk” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” were among the nominees for the 20th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards Wednesday, keeping their awards profiles high in the thick of Oscar voting.

In the contemporary category, “Three Billboards” was joined by “Get Out,” “I, Tonya,” “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” and “Lady Bird.” Meanwhile, “The Greatest Showman,” “Murder on the Orient Express” and — in its first guild/industry group recognition — “Phantom Thread” rounded out the period field.

The sci-fi/fantasy showcase featured Disney’s billion-dollar blockbusters “Beauty and the Beast” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” along with Marvel’s high-key “Thor: Ragnarok” and Denis Villeneuve’s sci-stylish “Blade Runner 2049.”

On the small screen, HBO came away with three nominations, two in contemporary (“Big Little Lies” and “The Young Pope”), one in sci-fi/fantasy (“Game of Thrones”). FX pulled down a pair for “American Horror Story: Cult” (contemporary) and “Feud: Joan and Bette” (period). Networks were represented by ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” FOX’s “Sleepy Hollow” and CBS’ “Star Trek: Discovery,” all in the sci-fi/fantasy category, while streamers claimed nearly half the lineup.

Netflix took three of the period slots, for “The Crown,” “Glow” and “Stranger Things,” and one each in contemporary (“Grace and Frankie”) and sci-fi/fantasy (“Black Mirror: USS Callister”). Hulu added a contemporary bid for “The Handmaid’s Tale,” while Amazon found room for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” in period.

Short-form nominees included music videos for Elton John featuring Marilyn Manson, Katy Perry and P!nk.
