In the Excellence in Contemporary Film category, the nominees are the costume designers of “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” “Nope,” “Tár,” “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Women Talking.” In Excellence in Period Films, the guild nominated “Babylon,” “Don’t Worry Darling,” “Elvis,” “Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris” and “The Woman King.”

In recent years, the Costume Designers Guild has typically nominated three or four of the films that have gone on to receive Oscar nominations for Best Costume Design. Those nominees almost always come from the period and fantasy categories. For the last two years in a row, all five Oscar nominees had also been recognized by the CDG; last year, four were from the period category and one from the fantasy one.

Nominees in the television categories include “House of the Dragon,” “The Rings of Power,” “Emily in Paris,” “Wednesday,” “The Gilded Age,” “Pam & Tommy,” “Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration” and “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.”
