And it’s not Cate Blanchett!

Catherine Martin has taken home an Oscar for Best Costume Design from a strong field of films…

American Hustle – Michael Wilkinson

The Grandmaster – William Chang Suk Ping

The Great Gatsby – Catherine Martin

The Invisible Woman – Michael O’Connor

12 Years a Slave – Patricia Norris


This is an amazing third Oscar for Martin, wife of Director Baz Luhrmann, as she also designed the sets and co-designed the costumes with Angus Strathie on Moulin Rouge, which earned her two Oscars for Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design.

Even more exciting, she may win a fourth before night’s end – YOU GO GIRL!

(LATE UPDATE – in the hour of writing this, Catherine Martin broke Aussie records and won a 4th Oscar for Production Design for The Great Gatsby).
