With 2 chances to win a Costume Designers Guild Award, Sandy Powell  could go on to make Oscar history with a career total 14 nominations
Edith Head, the reigning costume designer in ’50s Hollywood who died in 1981 and is the inspiration for “Incredibles 2’s” clothier to the superheroes, Edna Mode, has an Oscar record that will likely stand the test of time: 35 nominations and eight wins, including for Audrey Hepburn‘s dreamy outfits in 1953’s “Roman Holiday.”

But this year, British stylist Sandy Powell looks to have two chances to become the third living costume designer with the most Oscar wins with four as she is expected to compete for both for the royal pomp romp “The Favourite” and for the natty ’30s-era stylings of the musical comedy “Mary Poppins Returns.” The frequent collaborator with Martin Scorsese currently has three Academy Awards, for 1998’s “Shakespeare in Love,” 2004’s “The Aviator” and 2009’s “The Young Victoria.” If she wins another, she would match Milena Canonero and Colleen Atwood‘s record of a quartet of trophies.
