Best Costume Design – 1975

Official Nominations: Barry Lyndon. The Four Musketeers. Funny Lady. The Magic Flute. The Man Who Would Be King.

I have no real complaints with this one, though I’m not sure Funny Lady really does enough to warrant a nomination. The Magic Flute is dubious too, given that it’s basically a stage opera. The other three films fall into the epic or literary adaptation category and there isn’t much to choose between them.

My Winner: The Man Who Would Be King

My Nominations: The Man Who Would Be King. Barry Lyndon. The Four Musketeers. The Wind And The Lion. Monty Python And The Holy Grail. Picnic At Hanging Rock. The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The Stepford Wives.

A few extra films added, but again none of them truly stand out from any of the others. In that case I go for the most iconic option.

My Winner: The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    Great post 🙂 While I still would have picked Barry Lyndon, I can see why you would choose Rocky Horror over all the others. Under your alternate nominations though, you should have added Ken Russell’s Lisztomania. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

      It was a two-way pick between Barry and TMWWBK in the Official Category, but I think Rocky Horror is more of a one of a kind. Yeah, Lisztomania is worthy of a nod 🙂

Tell it like it is!
