A widely open category that could be populated by names the costume branch knows like Alexandra Byrne (Emma.) and Sandy Powell (The Glorias) but there’s enough new blood like Emmy nominees Trish Summerville (Mank) and Bina Daigeler (Mulan) to round the category out.
A nomination for Ann Roth (for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) would make her the oldest Oscar nominee ever at 89, surpassing James Ivory (Adapted Screenplay for Call Me By Your Name) back in 2017 at the time of his nomination.
Coming 2 America will now debut on Amazon Prime Video on March 5, 2021, putting outside of the eligibility period for this season’s awards. Death on the Nile was pulled from Warner Bros’ release schedule with no word on when or where it will reappear.
