Make-Up and Hairstyling Shortlist

Seven films advance to compete for the Best Make-Up and Hairstyling Oscar.  This is the category that in years past have made films like Click, Norbit and Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa Oscar nominees.  With that a sign must be expressed before reading the list.  The films advancing are:

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2
  • Foxcatcher
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Maleficent
  • Noah
  • The Theory of Everything

Aw, relief, sort of.  Nothing too extreme or embarrassing to report, even though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 still sucks...and Maleficent and Noah (one was expected, the other, perhaps not) are meh, at best, even considering strong presumably CGI-enhanced design elements.  Strangely no Into the Woods, no Unbroken (all the wound make-up) and, shudder, no Snowpiercer, a film that should (but won't) deal with the technical branches of the Academy.  At least Tilda Swinton showed up in some form.
