The major guilds have all chimed in with their nominees, and as Adam has pointed out in his Oscar Beat column, this gives us a clearer picture of who might be getting Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week. But it’s important to remember that guilds usually share members with the Academy, and now the American Society of Cinematographers and the Costume Designers Guild have chimed in with their nominees.
If you need proof that 2013 featured some beautifully shot pictures, the ASC ended up nominating seven films instead of five because there was a three-way tie. As for the costume designers, the plunging necklines of American Hustle earned a nomination as did the also-glamorous The Great Gatsby. I’m also pleased with the nomination for Her. One of the things I noticed on my third viewing was the subtle way that designer Casey Storm provided a “futuristic” fashion by having the men wear high wool pants and button the top button of collared shirts. It’s just another nice touch to a great movie. Hit the jump for a full list of the nominees from both guilds.
