This category is for links to categories of designers who have won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented the Award for the first time in 1948, judging black-and-white and color films separately as distinct categories. In 1957, the Academy combined the categories and presented only one award, only to distinguish between them again in 1959. In 1967 the Academy recombined the categories for the final time. Costumers who won several times will have multiple years next to their names. If the same year appears after more than one name, this indicates a collaborative effort and not a tie.
