The Costume Designers Guild announced nominees for its 13th Annual Awards ceremony, which will be held Feb. 22 at The Beverly Hilton. The event will be hosted by film and television actress Kristin Davis.
The Guild will be honoring Halle Berry, Academy Award-winning actress and Golden Globe nominee for Frankie and Alice, with the Lacoste Spotlight Award. The award honors an actor whose talent and career personifies an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design.
Two-time Oscar nominee and multiple Emmy winning costume designer Julie Weiss will be honored with this year’s Disaronno Career Achievement in Film and Television Award. A montage highlighting her extraordinary career will be introduced by designer favorites Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, and the award will be presented by Robert Duvall. Weiss’ career is expansive, having received 17 major award nominations for her work, and is best known for her work on Blades of Glory (2007) and American Beauty (1999) for which she has previously received two competitive Costume Designers Guild Awards.
The Distinguished Collaborator Award will be presented to famed director, Joel Schumacher. This year’s honor is particularly meaningful to the Guild as Schumacher started out his career as a costume designer.
Beloved costume designer Michael Dennison will be inducted posthumously into the Guild’s Hall of Fame for his work on television and feature films such as Eat Pray Love (2010) and Georgia O’Keefe (2009).
