The Best Makeup & Hairsyling category has been narrowed down to ten contenders. I think the front-runners here have to be the films that use a lot of makeup, which would be “Joker” as well as “Bombshell” and “Rocketman” who turn actors in their real life counterparts. I have a feeling “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” will have a strong presence at this year’s Oscars and since it’s a period piece, getting the makeup and hairstyling of that era could give it a leg up.

“All members of the Academy’s Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch will be invited to view seven-minute excerpts from each of the 10 shortlisted films on Saturday, January 4, 2020. Members will vote to nominate five films for final Oscar consideration.”
