  1. no doubt Cinderella is getting that oscar. This is a category that favours period pieces and lavish fantasy epics and Cinderella is basically both.

  2. Obviously, those nominating have never watched Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, a tv series set in the 1920s, or they would have nominated Marion Boyce in the period tv category. She is meticulous about assuring everything in her gorgeousl, beautifully-made costumes is authentic, really tough in an era before polyester and other synthetic materials. PBS stations have carried all the new episodes of this Australian-made series for several years.

    1. They are stunningly beautiful clothes in Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. Set in Melbourne Australia in the 1920s.

    1. I don’t know a whole lot about this category but what I actually watch …. but you are RIGHT! She’s amazing and the clothes she does for the whole cast (not just Ms. Balfe) are amazing!
