Barbie, Poor Things, Saltburn Win Costume Designers Guild Awards

“Barbie,” “Poor Things” and “Saltburn” have won the feature-film awards from the Costume Designers Guild, which gave out its 26th annual CDG Awards on Wednesday evening in Los Angeles.

“Barbie” won in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film category, “Poor Things” in the Period Film category and “Saltburn” in the Contemporary Film category. The CDGA’s sci-fi and period categories almost invariably produce the Oscar winners in the Best Costume Design category.

In the television categories, winners included “Ahsoka,” “Beef,” “The Great,” “Rebel Moon” and “A Black Lady Sketch Show.”
