Oscars 2017: The nominees are out!

So the nominations for the 89th Academy Awards are finally out and... we are frustrated at how predicable they were. At least in the Costume Design Category, which is the one that concerns us here.
Here are the Nominations for Costume Design: ALLIED. Costume Design by Joanna Johnston
This is a World War II Epic Romance-Drama very reminiscent of the Classic Hollywood Wartime dramas, even down to the excess of melodrama. This movie, though it didn't flop, it didn't impress either. Bland and predictable are terms as applicable to the plot as to the costumes. Don't understand why it's even here. FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM. Costume Design by Colleen Atwood
I was doubting, back in my 2016 Favorite Costume Design's List (read here) weather to include this or Miss Peregrine's, as both are designed by the splendid Colleen Atwood. In the end, I prefer Miss Peregrine's. I guess they don't. FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS. Costume Design by Consolata Boyle

Here we will not be looking at the quality of the movies themselves, but at the quality of their costume design. And in that regard, 2016 has unfortunately been generally bland. That doesn't mean that there hasn't been good costume designs. It just means that there hasn't been spectacular ones.
For that same reason, this will not be a top 10 so it's just as a top 7 list. Also, the order is rather random. All of the designs mentioned below stand on their own and I don't think they can really be properly listed.
And so, we begin. I- FASHIONABLE REVENGE: The Dressmaker designs by Marion Boyce and Margot Wilson
This indie Australian movie broke box office numbers earlier this year and that was, in great part, because of its amazing Costume Design. The movie has a ton of narrative and tonal problems, but when it comes to costume, it&#…
