Best Costume Design — 2018 Oscar Picks

Phantom ThreadPeriod pieces are frequently big winners in this category, requiring a lot of work to put together the stunning costumes. Phantom Thread should get some play here, since it’s about a fashion designer, but it’s not the only impressive showing in this category. Both Darkest Hour and Victoria + Abdul added weight to their main stars in costuming and looked at different times in English history for their inspiration. Neither of those movies really inspired, however. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast focused on extravagance, while Shape of Water was inspired in its muted yet character-driven costumes.
