Up in the Air (Danny Glicker)

Period

Julie & Julia (Ann Roth)
Nine (Colleen Atwood)
Sherlock Holmes (Jenny Beavan)
The Young Victoria (Sandy Powell)

Whoa! Despite a minimum of actual costumes being made, the guild still felt that Avatar deserved a mention for it costume design. While it may not have made my top five, I still think its inclusion here is an inspired choice.

Less inspired: the criminal snubbing of Janet Patterson's softly-hued colour-coded threads in Bright Star. How they could exclude this from the Period category is nothing short of baffling. This was the film's best shot for some guild love this season. If it couldn't score here, I wonder that might be shut out by the Academy as well. Other notable snubs include Inglourious Basterds and An Education.
