2021 OSCARS PREDICTIONS:
BEST COSTUME DESIGN

Emmy nominee Trish Summerville finally looks to have something that the Academy can potentially notice with “Mank” after being passed over far too often. The category also anticipates the cloth of Ann Roth, Oscar-winner of “The English Patient,” who hasn’t been nominated since “The Hours” in 2003. If Roth is nominated, she would be the oldest nominee in Oscar history at 90-year-old. She isn’t the only former winner in the mix as Michael O’Connor’s work on “Ammonite” has the goods to bring him back to the fray. And then there’s Bina Daigeler’s pop of colors and designs in “Mulan” that fits past Oscar-winning costume work.
