The "Outstanding Costume" categories for the Primetime Emmys should be re-named "Outstanding Period Dress." This year's nominations only support the bid: The five shows in specifically the series category take us from New York in the 1920s to late 15th Century Spain to the mythical land where people have English accents so we're going to say Europe circa Beowulf to England between two wars to current day Maine but with fairies and princesses. Same deal with the made for TV movies. After the jump, find 2013's costume nominations.
