While it’s not quite a surprise to see a film about fashion leading the pack in the Best Costume Design category, any film that manages to steal an art-related award from Dune is impressive. Cruella has won 100% of the eligible precursor awards, with the only other wins going to Dune and Coming 2 America at the Costume Designers Guild, which splits by genre. Keep an eye on Dune if they’re having a big night, but place your bets on Cruella to win.
Note: Regarding any ties: our predictions are sorted by Win %, Nomination %, Outside Wins, and Outside Nominations, in that order. In the event of any ties, I am also sorting by Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer at lowest priority to determine physical chart position, though not allowing it to actually break any ties. It has no true bearing on a film’s Oscar chances, but it’s the simplest aggregate of overall critical reception, and it’s less arbitrary than sorting alphabetically by “Film Name” when ties are involved.

- Critics Choice Awards – Winners have been announced.
- Costume Designers Guild – Winners have been announced.
Note: The Costume Designers Guilds nominate separately for Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Contemporary, and Period films. Since a film cannot be nominated in more than one, we count all three together as 1 of 3 possible nomination categories (rather than each being 1 of 5).
- British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards – Winners have been announced.
