For fantasy film, Barbie, The Creator, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Poor Things and Wonka were the nominees.

In contemporary feature, Beau is Afraid, John Wick: Chapter 4, The Killer, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One and Saltburn were nominated.

“It’s our honor and privilege to gather the guild to recognize the excellence among our members,” says award show producers Michael Allen Glover, ADG and Megan Elizabeth Bell, ADG in a joint statement.

Notable misses include The Color Purple (which also missed the costume guild and the hair and makeup Oscar shortlist), The Holdovers and American Fiction.
