Welcome to FrockTalk, the web’s only costume-based movie review site. The goal of Frocktalk is to shed light on the magnificent artistry of costume design in motion pictures. Reviews on this site are written by working costume designers in the entertainment industry – people who know, better than anyone, what it takes to make it all happen. The focus of FrockTalk is not to comment on the big flashy costume dramas, but to call attention to the seemingly ordinary costume design work in film that silently and persuasively moves the audience toward understanding the characters. Costume design for motion pictures is an art form that deserves more recognition than it usually gets. Fancy, pretty costumes do not always equal effective, appropriate costumes. The art of the costume is in letting the audience know who the character is, before the actor even has a chance to open his mouth. Read on, and enjoy. ** CAUTION: ALL REVIEWS CONTAIN SPOILERS! **

For some reason, I can’t find any nominees in the category of “Variety-Musical” listed on the Television Academy’s website, but here is a nice article from Fox.com about Soyon’s Emmy win.  It calls the award a “juried award” and they say that it was announced on August 24th.  A bit of a mystery, but it does not diminish the honor, in any case.

Congrats, Soyon, Barbara and Robert!  Also huge congratulations to all of their respective crew!  Everybody wins!
