And the Oscar Goes to... Winners of the Costume Awards

Good evening everybody and welcome everyone to the first ever Costume Awards. Bob Hope wanted to be here tonight to help me announce the winners this evening but he couldn't find his sarong.

Tonight's Awards honors the costumes and their designers for all of the films released before the Academy Award for Best Costume was instituted. There were many great and beautiful costumes in the films released between 1930 and 1947 and we are here tonight to recognize the tireless work and effort that went into them and that decades later still bring us delight when we see them on the big (tv) screen whether it's the first time or the 20th time.

Now I know some of you have been waiting for this moment for quite some time so I won't waste any time in announcing the winners.

  1. Yay, most of the films I voted for won! I'm specially pleased about "The Divorcee" because I genuinely love Norma Shearer's gowns in that.
