The Academy loves its period-inspired wardrobe, especially when it comes to the 1960s: one of the colorfully loudest decades in American history. For this reason, I predict a win for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but it will be a close race with Little Women for its beautifully ornate and accurate nineteenth century attire. It was sad to not see Ruth E. Carter's dazzling artistry nominated for Dolemite Is My Name, which in many ways out classes Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with its variety, style, and professionally seductive flare.
