Costume Designers Guild (CDG) Awards - nominees

This morning, the Costume Designers Guild unveiled the nominees for their 14th Annual CDG Awards.

As with the Art Directors Guild nominations, the Costume Designers nominate films and television shows in separate categories for Contemporary, Period and Fantasy productions.

Nominees that have been turning up on many other awards lists include The Artist, The Descendants, The Help, Hugo and Bridesmaids. Other than perhaps Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the Fantasy Film nominees have not shown up on many awards lists as Fantasy is aften aimed at a very young audience and not taken as seriously.

Hugo's Sandy Powell is a three-time Academy Award winner and won the CDG award two years ago for her work on The Young Victoria when she also received the CDG Career Achievement Award.

The Costume Designers Guild Event will be held on Tuesday, February 21st, 2012 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The host will be actress Jane Lynch.
