The musical film "Dreamgirls" received a Costume Designers Guild Award nomination for its designer Sharen Davis in the Period Film category.

"High School Musical," designed by Tom McKinley, was nominated in the Outstanding Made-For-Television Movie of Miniseries category.

The awards will be announced Feb. 17 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

"Dreamgirls," based on the 1981 Broadway musical, keeps racking up kudos, as it recently earned a Directors Guild of America nomination for Bill Condon and three Screen Actors Guild nominations, for stars Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Hudson and for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

The film earned five Golden Globe nominations, for Murphy, Hudson, Beyoncé Knowles, Best Motion Picture-Comedy or Musical and Best Original Song-Motion Picture ("Listen").

Hudson, the former "American Idol" finalist, has been especially fortunate, having been honored as Best Supporting Actress by the New York Film Critics Circle, Best Breakthrough Performance from the National Board of Review, runner up for the Los Angeles Critics Association's Supporting Actress prize. She also won the Pauline Kael Breakout Award from the Florida Film Critics and an Oklahoma Film Critics Circle Award for Breakout Performance.

"Dreamgirls" also stars Anika Noni Rose as Lorrell Robinson, Jamie Foxx as Curtis Taylor Jr. and Danny Glover as Marty. Condon wrote the film's screenplay based on the late Tom Eyen's book. The film employs most of the original score by Eyen and Henry Krieger as well as four new tunes.
