Best Costume Design – 1970

Official Nominations : Cromwell. Airport. Darling Lili. The Hawaiians. Scrooge.

Cromwell is a worthy winner, though on a personal note this era and style does little for me from any sort of aesthetic viewpoint. Airport gets a nod for the sheer scope and diversity on offer, Scrooge is much the same as Cromwell though a couple of centuries later. The Hawaiians and Darling Lili don’t really need to be here – both are fine but nothing out of the ordinary.

My Winner: Cromwell

My Nominations: Cromwell. Tora Tora Tora. MASH. Brewster McCloud. Catch-22. The Conformist.

If I add one war movie, then I have to add them all – my three picks here all being of a similar quality. The Conformist gets another nomination, because of course it does, while Brewster McCloud is hilarious. It deserves a nomination for those wings alone. Well, that’s about the only ‘costume’ costume in the whole things, but anyway….

My Winner: Cromwell
