Today this year's Oscar nominations were announced and I'm glad to say I've been fortunate to see costumes from Carol, The Danish Girl, Cinderella and The Revenant in person these past twelve months (although sadly none for Mad Max: Fury Road). Here's a selection of Oscar-nominated costumes, plus more movie exhibits from around L.A. in the past month or so.
Here's two costumes from The Revenant designed by Jacqueline West, were worn by Tom Hardy and Leonardo DiCaprio, which were photographed on display at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema at the beginning of January 2016.
They also had more First Order Stormtrooper costumes, plus models of the Millennium Falcon, Rey's Speeder and new Han Solo and General Leia Organa costumes on display which were supercool to see up close in person.
The display featured three screen-used sets and puppets from the movie by Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson, so if you're a fan of stop-motion animation be sure to check out this Anomalisa exhibit in more detail.
Opposite the entrance to Arclight Hollywood they had this fantastic selection of costumes from The Hateful Eight on display, which were frustratingly hard to photograph, but still cool to see in person at the beginning of 2016.
It'll be interesting to see who wins the Oscar this year as Sandy Powell is nominated for both Carol and Cinderella.
In the meantime, let's hope the costume and prop exhibits keep coming throughout 2016...
