Achievement in costume design – my pick: Black Panther
This year I decided to try to piece together a sampling of costumes from each movie. By doing that, it further reinforced my off-the-cuff choice for the category as Black Panther. This scene (picture below), with the various tribes coming together as a new leader is chosen, is the reason why. The amount of detail throughout the film is reason enough but this scene brought all the colors of the pallet to life for our visual pleasure. Ruth Carter is a genius and this award should go to her.
