The only problem I have with Period Dramas are that they are pretty much nailed on for Best Costume Design awards. When The Young Victoria was released, without missing a beat I proclaimed as the winner of the next Oscar for BCD. I was right.
Like hell did The Duchess have better costume design that The Dark Knight or Hellboy 2, the only parts of those films I thought were truly stellar. I'm just tired of seeing the same thing, year in, year out. It's getting to the point where I'm certain they're recycling costumes from film to film.
