Black costume designer, Sharen Davis, gets Oscar nomination for ‘Django Unchained’

It’s less than one week before the nominations are officially revealed for the Academy Awards and a website glitch has leaked some coveted information: Django Unchained’s costume designer Sharen Davis is one of the lucky nominees!

The site’s leak read: “This is the third Academy Award nomination for Sharen Davis. She was previously nominated for Dreamgirls (2006) and Ray (2004).”

Vanity Fair got first dibs on the interview with Davis and in her excitement she tells them, “Oh my gosh! I haven’t even lost weight! I never thought about an Oscar in my life. When they called me for Ray, I thought it was a prank call. I said, ‘Am I going to open the door and see one of those fake, standing Oscars?’”
