2012's Best Onscreen Costumes: Our Oscar-Worthy Picks

This Sunday night, some of our all-time favorite actors and actresses will face off at the 85th Academy Awards—as will the costume designers who worked nonstop behind the scenes to create the wardrobe for their nominated films. We're thrilled that certain designers earned a nod this year—Jacqueline Durran for Anna Karenina and Paco Delgado for Les Misérables, for instance—but there are a good handful of flicks we wish had been nominated for their costumes, too.

Click through to see which onscreen wardrobes we loved most last year—both the Oscar-eligible and the sadly snubbed—as well as to learn our personal pick for Best Costume Design.

Snow White and the Huntsman

Why: Colleen Atwood's incredible skill is most apparent in the looks she created for Charlize Theron's evil Queen Ravenna, which range from caged bodices to intricately beaded court gowns to battle armor Atwood told us "weighed about 30 pounds."

Nominated? Yes.
