    This year's CDG Awards also marked the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Guild. Anjelica Huston was mistress of ceremonies at the awards. Deborah Nadoolman Landis is President of CDG. Presenters included Andy Garcia, Laura San Giacomo, Mira Sorvino, Meryl Streep, Tim Curry, Victor Garber, Patricia Wettig, Ken Olin, Rick Levine and Bob Mackie.

    Dustin Hoffman was presented an honorary CDG award for Distinguished Actor. Other honorary awards were presented to Ann Roth for Career Achievement in Film, to Rita Riggs for Career Achievement in Television, and to legendary Italian Costume Designer Piero Tosi for The President's Award. In addition, Clare West, Mitchell Leisen, Natacha Rambova and Wayne Finkelman were inducted into the Guild's Hall of Fame.

    Awards Committee Chair for CDG is Lois DeArmond with Robin Richesson and Bonnie Nipar assisting on important sub-committees.

    The winners for 2002 Excellence in Costume Design Awards are:

    Each winner and honoree received a work-of-art silver statuette, valued at $15,000 by its supplier, the famed Italian jewelers Bvlgari. The award, one of the most sought-after statuettes in the world of awards, was designed by CDG member David LeVey who describes it as "an amorphous swirl of fabric resolving into a draped human figure of idealized female beauty." The statuettes reflect a mixture of neo-classicism and 1940s Hollywood glamour. Presenters were each given $5,000 LaCroix watches as part of their gift bags.

    Honorary co-chairs of the CDG Awards were Bob Mackie and Ray Aghayan. CDG's Executive Director is James J. Casey Jr. Sponsors of this year's CDG Awards included Bvlgari, International Creative Management, Cinecitta Holding, The Scenographer, The Hollywood Reporter, and Daily Variety.
