'Black Panther' And 'The Favourite' Are Favorites At The 2019 Costume Designers Guild Awards

Two favorites to win the Oscar for Costume Design were also highly favored at the 2019 Costume Designers Guild Awards. The guild handed top awards to Oscar costume design front-runners Black Panther and The Favourite at its ceremony on Tuesday night, which recognized the best in Hollywood costume design.

The Costume Designers Guild Awards named The Favourite as the winner in Excellence in Period Film, while Black Panther earned the award for Excellence in Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Both The Favourite's Sandy Powell and Black Panther's Ruth E. Carter are considered favorites to win at the Oscars for best Costume Design, with Carter in particular up for the distinction of the first African-American to win an Academy Award for costume design if her Afro-futuristic wardrobes were to earn her the Oscar.

Another film to earn a top prize at the Costume Designers Guild Awards was Crazy Rich Asians, whose designer Mary E. Vogt took the Contemporary Film honor. While the film was recognized at the Golden Globes, the watershed film was ignored by the Oscars.

On the TV side, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel took the award for Excellence in Period Television while Westworld took the Sci-Fi/Fantasy prize and The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story won for Contemporary film.
