La La Land, Hidden Figures and Jackie are among the films that have been nominated for Costume Designers Guild Awards, which will be handed out Feb. 21 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

There are three feature categories, for contemporary, period and fantasy films. Notable in the fantasy film category is the nomination of Deoborah Cook for the stop-motion animated Kubo and the Two Strings, for which costumes were made for the puppets used to make the movie. This in the first time an animated movie earned a CDG Award nomination. It's nominated alongside Doctor Strange, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryColleen Atwood is a double nominee in this category, for both Fantastic Beasts and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

The costume designers behind Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, Captain Fantastic, La La Land, Lion and Nocturnal Animals are nominated for a contemporary film. The CDG nominated The Dressmaker, Florence Foster Jenkins, Hail, Caesar!, Hidden Figures and Jackie for a period film.

During the past 10 years, the winner of one of the CDG Awards categories went on to win the Oscar for costume design. Four times it went to the winner of the period film category, and twice the Oscar was awarded to the fantasy film winner.

Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and Westworld are among the nominees in the television categories.

The CDG Awards ceremony will be hosted by Mandy Moore. As previously announced, Meryl Streep will receive the Distinguished Collaborator Award, and costume designer Jeffrey Kurland will receive this year’s Career Achievement Award.
