Winners of the 85th Academy Awards 2013 including Best Costume Design Award for Anna Karenina!

LIVE Blogging Tonight is for the 85th Academy Awards (starting at 7e/4p for its annual red carpet)! Joe Wright's Anna Karenina (starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen) film is nominated for 4 Oscars, unfortunately, neither on the acting nor the directing categories, but in the technical categories! Still, glad the Oscars recognized the amazing crew of AK and their beautiful work. Here's hoping they'll win at least one or two or win them all!

Jacqueline Durran, Costume Design (Anna Karenina): Minutes after winning the Oscar for costume design for her work on Anna Karenina, Jacqueline Durran told reporters backstage that director Joe Wright told her to focus on silhouette and color. "Quite often what happens is you design for the director and then he uses your costumes in a way you never would have imaged." She also said the actors -- and particularly Keira Knightley, whom she worked with on Wright's Atonement -- had a lot to do with how well the costumes worked. "This was a very stylized look that they really had to be on board with." This marks Durran's first Oscar win. She was previously nominated for her costume work on Atonement, also directed by Wright and starring Knightley. -- Pamela McClintock (via Hollywood Reporter)
