Six out of nine Harry Potter universe movies have been nominated for a total of 16 Academy Awards, but until tonight, none have won. The curse/jinx (depending on if the dark arts were involved) lasted until tonight at the 89th annual Academy Awards, when Fantastic Beasts and where to find them won Best Costume Design. This was costume designer Colleen Atwood’s 12th nomination, and she’s won three times previously for ChicagoMemoirs of a Geisha, and Alice in Wonderland.
