Best Costume Design Winners

Oscars 2014 3Best Costume Design

A large part of bringing a story to life is making sure that the actors and actresses look the part. The wide variety of worlds created in films have benefited from the excellent work done by the men and women who’ve designed the costumes. From medieval knights to aliens, soldiers to Elizabethan socialites, these designers have made a clear mark on the success of films. Like other visual categories this one was initially divided into color and black-and-white winners. The categories were eventually combined in 1967. When talking about this award no name stands out more than Edith Head. She won Best Costume Design eight times out of 35 nominations received over a career than spanned more than five decades. Her work includes films like Rear Window, The Sting, and Funny Face. More recently, films like The Great Gatsby, The Artist, and The Grand Budapest Hotel have taken this one home.
