A smorgasbord of new film costume and prop displays in L.A. this 2017 holiday season...

ArcLight Hollywood cinema is always a treasure trove of costumes and props around this time of year with all the industry awards and Oscar contenders hoping to grab your attention with their movie exhibits. With time tight with so much to do and so many films I'd love to see this festive season, these exhibits really tease me and help me decide what I'll watch next on the big screen.

The Tonya Harding figure skating biopic starring Margot Robbie looks interesting this December, and this bedazzled I, Tonya movie costume designed by Jennifer Johnson is the latest screen-worn outfit on display at my favourite L.A. cinema. It's definitely on my must-see list.

Up next for me I think though is Guillermo del Toro's latest flick, The Space of Water, which sounds just like my cup of tea. A mute, mousy caretaker meets an amphibian man that looks like the Creature from the Black Lagoon in a tale with a smattering of fantasy, horror and romance, sounds right up my alley.

Be sure to take a closer look at Sally Hawkins costume from The Shape of Water designed by Luis Sequeria. And if you haven't checked out the British actress in 2010's Made in Dagenham you really should, it's a really sweet film.

This awards season Gary Oldman seems desperate to get and Oscar nomination for his role as U.K. Prime Minister Winston Churchill in WWII drama, Darkest Hour.

Currently on display at the ArcLight Hollywood venue are these screen-used props from Darkest Hour which give you a glimpse inside the iconic figure's wartime work environment.

It'll be a bit of a guilty pleasure this holiday season, but I really want to see James Franco in The Disaster Artist. I was unaware of the people involved and the cult film itself, The Room, one of the worst ever made apparently, but there's something about the quirky biopic which appeals to my cinema viewing sensibilities. Brenda Abbandandolo was Costume Designer on this new movie, which also stars James real-life brother Dave Franco.

And finally, there is also a cool display of sci-fi costumes from the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie on display, 'Finn' and 'Captain Phasma' costumes designed by Michael Kaplan.

I'm sure this won't be the last of the costume exhibits this season, especially with a new Star Wars movie on the way, but it's a damn good start to the awards consideration season.

I can't wait to see what appears next when I go to the movies...
