Hello there, Frocktalkers! Just a friendly reminder that if you are a CDG member, get your nominating ballot in the mail today – ballots must be in the Guild office by 5PM tomorrow, 12-11-12. You can nominate your own films/TV shows/commercials, and you can nominate the films/TV shows/commercials of others, including non-IA, or even non-US work. The Costume Designers Guild Awards are, in the opinions of many, the most esteemed. These are our peers – people who do what we do – showing their appreciation for outstanding achievement in costume design. In our largely thankless profession, it means a lot to have the appreciation of one’s peers! So get those ballots in, folks, and show your support for all the great work of 2012! Have a great week!
