Nominees for the Costume Designers Guild Awards were announced today. The winners will be announced at the guild’s 17th annual awards ceremony Feb. 17 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Acclaimed producer, director and screenwriter Richard Linklater (who recently collaborated with costume designer Kari Perkins on the 12-years-in-the-making epic film, Boyhood) will receive the distinguished collaborator award in recognition of his support of costume design and creative partnerships with costume designers.
An honorary career achievement award will be presented to costume designer Aggie Guerard Rodgers for her outstanding work in film.
The 2015 Edith Head award for the advancement of the art of costume design will be presented to costume designer, scholar, and two-term CDG past president, Dr. Deborah Nadoolman Landis, a CDG member and costume design activist for nearly 40 years.
