The sun has come out (tomorrow) for Emilio Sosa…
The 54-year-old Dominican Tony Award-nominated costume designer is among this year’s CDG Awards nominees, as announced by the Costume Designers Guild.
Sosa, the current Chair for the American Theatre Wing Board of Trustees in New York City, is nominated in the Excellence in Variety, Reality-Competition, Live Television for his work on Annie Live!, a musical television special that aired on NBC on December 2, 2021. It was a performance of the 1977 musical Annie, which is based on the comic strip Little Orphan Annie by Harold Gray.
Sosa competed on Season 7 of Project Runway and Project Runway All Stars.
He’s best known for his works Topdog/Underdog, Porgy and Bess, and By the Way, Meet Vera Stark.
Meanwhile Cuban American designer Jeriana San Juan and Mexican costume design Mayes C. Rubeo are both nominated in the Excellence in Period Television category.
San Juan is nominated for her work on Halston: Becoming Halston; Rubeo is nominated for WandaVision: Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience.
The CDG Awards recognize excellence in the craft across eight film, TV and short-form categories. The guild also said its winners will be announced at an in-person ceremony March 9 at The Broad Stage.
This year’s host, presenters and additional honorees will be announced in the coming weeks, the guild said.
“Throughout the pandemic, we’ve been reminded how important costume design is, not only to entertain—but to inspire,” said CDG president Salvador Perez. “We are thrilled to celebrate in person this year, with safety as our priority. We want to recognize our nominees and all of their phenomenal work as we take the CDGA into a new direction.”
