'Squid Game' earns nomination for 24th Costume Designers Guild Awards
The hit Netflix series “Squid Game” was nominated in the category of Excellence in Contemporary Television at the upcoming 24th Costume Designers Guild Awards (CDGA).
The annual awards ceremony, established in 1999, honors excellence in costume design in short-form film, television series and advertisements.
Costume designer Cho Sang-kyung was nominated alongside Patricia Field and Marylin Fitoussi for “Emily in Paris,” Heidi Bivens for “Euphoria,” Kathleen Felix-Hager for “tricks” and Meghan Kasperlik for “Mare of Easttown.”
The award ceremony is scheduled to take place offline at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, on March 9.
“Throughout the pandemic, we have been reminded of how important costume design is, not only to entertain, but also to inspire,” Salvador Pérez, president of the Costume Designers Guild, said in a statement. “We are delighted to celebrate in person this year, with safety as our priority. We want to recognize our nominees and all of their phenomenal work as we take the CDGA in a new direction.”
Prior to nomination from CDGA, the series also received nominations for the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, Golden Reel Awards from Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE), Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Awards and Art Directors Guild (ADG) Awards this year.
The series won three nominations in ADR/dialogue, effects/Foley and music from MPSE and one nomination in sound mixing from CAS and one nomination in production design from ADG.
Earlier this month “Squid Game” made history by becoming the first Korean drama series to receive four nominations for this year’s SAG Awards including Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Series. It is also the first non-English-language drama series to be nominated in the 28-year history of the SAG awards.
