Astute readers, or longtime readers frustrated by our unceasing commitment to asinine bits, may have noticed that in our un-heralded Random Awards, in which we bestow awards to some of the random tidbits of cinema in the preceding year that most tickled our peculiar fancy, which are not really random at all since we do most of them annually, that the Annual Scarlett O'Hara Curtain Dress Award, presented to our favorite piece of cinematic clothing of the year, was not given. It was not given because, well, despite re-combing through the myriad movies we had seen in 2016, no individual bit of costume design had truly, to paraphrase Q-Tip, sizzled our retinas. That, as it turns out, was because we had yet to see "20th Century Women" and therefore had yet to see Greta Gerwig's jacket, which we now officially name as 2016's Annual Scarlett O'Hara Curtain Dress Award winner.
