"Elizabeth: The Golden Age" is one of the nominees for "period films" honors at the 10th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards.
For the most part, most of the nominees deserve their honors, but, "Into the Wild?" I love this film (it placed number 4 on my fave list), but what costume? Emile Hirsch was pretty much in his grungy, near-naked glory for the most of the film.
What about the candy-colored costumes in "Hairspray?"
The good news -- the alluring Anjelica Huston will host the award show on Feb. 19 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

As expected, "Atonement" leads the nominations for the British Academy Film Awards, grabbing a total of 14 mentions!!!
Meanwhile, "No Country for Old Men" and "There Will Be Blood" each received 9 nominations.
I love "Atonement," it placed number 3 on my Top 10 Best Films of 2007, and it's safe to predict that it will win Best Picture at the BAFTA!!!
Winners will be announced February 10th.

He sparred brilliantly with Susan Sarandon in "The Client," showing promising future ahead as an actor. But early Tuesday, Brad Renfro, 25, was found dead in his home.
Renfro struggled with drugs and alcohol for several years. He served 10 days in jail in May 2006 for DUI and guilty to attempted possession of heroin.
His cause of death was not immediately determined, but a post-mortem examination was due to be conducted.
Renfro had reportedly been drinking with friends the evening before his death, according to an investigator for the Los Angeles County coroner's office.
He recently completed a role in The Informers, a film adaptation of a Bret Easton Ellis novel that stars Winona Ryder, Brandon Routh and Billy Bob Thornton.
This is sad.
