Nominees were announced today for the 23rd CDGA (Costume Designers Guild Awards) celebrating excellence in film, television, and short-form costume design. Executive Produced by JumpLine and sponsored by Campari, winners will be announced during the ceremony which will take place on Tuesday, April 13, 2021. 

For the first time in CDGA history, the annual awards show will be livestreamed for fans worldwide exclusively on Twitter @CostumeAwards at 5:30pm PT / 8:30pm ET. This year’s host, presenters and honoree will be announced in the coming weeks.

“I would like to congratulate all of the nominees of the 23rd Costume Designers Guild Awards. We’ve had to come together as a community to support one another during these unprecedented times. We believe that through our work we have been supporting our audiences as well,” said Salvador Perez, President of the Costume Designers Guild, IATSE Local 892. “We look forward to honoring costume designers’ achievements and their creativity which has transported and inspired us.” 

“With the need to shift our show to a virtual and limited in-person production, we embraced the opportunity to create an entirely new format that will amplify the recognition of these brilliant costume designers,” said JL Pomeroy, Executive Producer of CDGA and Founder of JumpLine. “For the first time, fans can tune-in on Twitter to help celebrate the innovative genius of the costume designers who bring characters to life in their favorite films and series.”

Following its exclusive live debut on Twitter, the awards show will remain on Twitter and also be available on demand the next day across platforms including CDGA.LIVE and CDGA’s Instagram
