2018 Emmy Nominations for Costume Design

12 Jul

Instant thoughts on the overall nominations include being thrilled for The Americans getting back into the Best Drama category, dancing with joy that Tatiana Maslany got a nom even though Orphan Black finished so long ago (she was incredible in that final season) and the Sandra Oh nod for Killing Eve. About half my wish list got recognized. The major ones missing out being the mini-series picks; I don’t understand how Kyle MacLachlan is not included. But, whatever TV Academy.

As is the TV Ate My Wardrobe tradition, here are some thoughts on the costume design nominees and snubs. Plus a full list of which shows/costume designers have been nominated. Categories are split into Contemporary, Period, Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Variety/Nonfiction/Reality — this year they separated period and fantasy, which makes so much sense. And we already know which episodes have been submitted. Also let’s hope the This is Us team did their calculations this time (I’m pretty sure they did).

This is a very strong year for outerwear.
There is plenty to be thrilled about including Ane Crabtree for Handmaid’s Tale, previous winners Michele Clapton and Lou Eyrich getting recognized once again. First time shows such as Donna Zakowska for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Cynthia Summers for her first season on A Series of Unfortunate Events also jump out at me. And I am really happy to see Terry Dresbach get a nomination for the episode of Outlander that introduced Claire’s ‘Batsuit.’

Of course I wanted to see Katie Irish get recognized for the many disguises that have helped bring The Americans spy world to life. They aren’t flashy looks, which means they don’t necessarily stand out against some of the other period nominees. But this is extraordinary work, particularly as this season embraced the more overt ’80s styling that audiences were probably expecting early on. Timeless is a show that did a different decade (sometimes century) every week and Mari-An Ceo did an incredible job of not only crafting costumes for the principals actors, but also a host of background ones. This also gives me a good opportunity to say how sad I am that it got cancelled.
