Best Costume Design- 1962

Official Nominations: BW:   What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? – Norma Koch.   Days of Wine and Roses – Don Feld.   The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance – Edith Head.   The Miracle Worker – Ruth Morley.  Phaedra – Denny Vachlioti

Colour:   The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm – Mary Wills.   My Geisha – Edith HeadThe Music Man – Dorothy JeakinsGypsy – Orry-KellyBon Voyage! – Bill Thomas

My Winner: Again I agree with the choices of winners this year- Baby Jane and Brothers Grimm. A rare winless year for Edith Head, Norma Koch’s weary, grim costumes for Baby Jane add to the unsettling tone, while Mary Wills gives abundant flare to the onscreen antics of Brothers Grimm.

My Nominations:  The 300 Spartans. Dr. No. Lawrence Of Arabia. Lolita. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Mutiny On The Bounty. Baby Jane. Brothers Grimm.

My Winner: My winner this year goes to The 300 Spartans thanks to epic scale and wonderfully detailed costumes on both warring sides. Ginette Devaud did not have a huge career but deserves the win here.
