Nominations for the 21st annual Costume Designers Guild Awards (CDGA) have been announced.
Among the nominees are Ruth E. Carter, who designed the Afrofuturistic costumes for the fictional world of Wakanda in Ryan Coogler’s blockbuster film Black Panther; the Oscar- and Emmy-nominated costume designer will additionally be honored with a career achievement award at next month’s event.
Costume designer Sandy Powell is a double nominee for The Favourite, set in the 18th-century court of Queen Anne, and the vibrant live-action musical Mary Poppin Returns. Powell created 448 original costumes for the latter film, set in 1930s-era London, including hand-painted trompe l’oeil looks for the partially animated scenes.
The awards ceremony is set to take place Tuesday, Feb. 19, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
The evening’s host and additional honorees, including the Distinguished Service and Spotlight awards, will be announced in the coming weeks, the guild said. Meanwhile, here are the nominees for the 2019 CDGAs:
