COSTUME DESIGNERS GUILD CHIMES IN WITH ITS 2016 NOMINATIONS


Those Silence fans hoping that it might be onto something of a mini-streak with the guilds, following its nomination yesterday at the American Society of Cinematographers, will be rather disappointed by its undeserving snub from the Costume Designers Guild. Still, there's a lot to love in the CDG's picks this year, which include fare as diverse as Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie and, of all things, Kubo and the Two Strings! Save the date for the most fashionable film awards of the year: the 21st of February.
