The Costume Designers Guild (CDG) announced the winners of their 16th annual ceremony on February 22nd, 2014 with giving away the top prizes to 12 YEARS A SLAVE, THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE and BLUE JASMINE in Period, Fantasy and Contemporary film categories respectively. Now, this makes it interesting at this point because recently, THE GREAT GATSBY won the Costume Design award at the BAFTAs and it’s the frontrunner at the moment but things might turn out to be different at the Oscars. Last year, ANNA KARENINA won the Oscar for Best Costume Design and it also won the CDG award. Let’s see how things go this time.
