84th Oscar Costume Design Updates (2011-2012 Awards Season) (7/18/11)

Here are today’s rankings for the 84th Oscar Costume Design race, with previous ranking shown in parenthesis after each entry.

Over the past 20 years, the costume design branch has nominated 100 films, only 31 of which have also received a best picture nomination. Since I’m currently predicting at least 3 of these nominees to also be nominated for best picture (60%), this probably means that I’m still judging the movie as a whole instead of focusing closely enough on the costumes themselves. Or, maybe this set of predictions is absolutely perfect and it is my best picture predictions that are all wrong! HA!

1. Michael O’Connor for Jane Eyre (Predicted Winner) (previous rank 1)
2. Sandy Powell for Hugo Cabret (previous rank 2)
3. Joanna Johnston for War Horse (previous rank 3)
4. Denise Cronenberg for A Dangerous Method (previous rank 4)
5. Mark Bridges for The Artist (previous rank 29)

6. Deborah Hopper for J. Edgar (previous rank 13)
