Hosted by Joel McHale with an all-star list of presenters that included Steve Martin, Shirley MacLaine and Russell Crowe, the 15th Costume Designers Guild Awards were handed out Tuesday evening in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton.
In addition to recognizing costume designers Eduardo Castro ("Once Upon a Time," "Ugly Betty") and Judianna Makovsky ("The Hunger Games," "Seabiscuit," "Big") for their career achievements in the fields of television and film, respectively, "Saturday Night Live's" Lorne Michaels received a Distinguished Collaborator Award -- and no small amount of humorous ribbing from Martin whose observations as presenter included that "a trophy is better than a plaque because everybody in this town wants a trophy wife -- no one wants a plaque wife."
The evening's award winners included:
Outstanding period/fantasy TV series
Caroline McCall for "Downton Abbey"
Outstanding made-for-television movie or miniseries
Lou Eyrich for "American Horror Story: Asylum, Season 2"
Outstanding contemporary TV series
Molly Maginnis for "Smash"
