2020 Oscars Challenge: [30] “Joker” — Eleven Nominations

Chances are, it’s not going to win Best Picture, as three other film (“1917,” “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” and “Parasite”) seem to have a bigger claim to it, but it’s definitely in the range of possibilities for Joaquin Phoenix to win for Best Leading Actor and Hildur Guðnadóttir to win for Best Original Score.

2020 Oscars Challenge: [20] “Bombshell” — Three Nominations

At this point in the season, it would take a lot for anyone to usurp the front-runner Renée Zellweger. If anyone is, it seems more likely that it will be Scarlett Johansson. The experts place Charlize Theron as the next in line, but at that point, it will likely be a toss up anyway.

2020 Oscars Challenge: [6] “Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil” — Best Makeup and Hairstyling

Inexplicably, “Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil” is dead last according to the experts, with “Bombshell” remaining the odds on favorite.

2020 Oscars Challenge: [5] “Judy” — Two Nominations

Renée Zellweger has swept the awards season and there looks to be no stopping her. There’s no reason to believe she won’t win the Oscar as well.

Oscars Shortlist: 7 Makeup and Hairstyling Shortlisted for 90th Academy Awards

Here are your final seven competitors for Best Makeup and Hairstyling in a feature. Netflix’s “Bright” pops in here so either the Academy is starting to move toward not minding the streaming service or it just happened to make the final cut.

Oscars Shortlist: 7 Makeup & Hairstyling Shortlisted for 88th Academy Awards

With a shortlisting in the Best Makeup & Hairstyling category, we have a fairly clear picture of what’s being considered. In my picks, I’m leaning towards the films that will likely receive other awards love. Since there’s only three nominations in this category, four of them won’t make the cut. “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Revenant” feel like safe bets to me, while … Read More Oscars Shortlist: 7 Makeup & Hairstyling Shortlisted for 88th Academy Awards

2015 Oscars Challenge: [12] The Grand Budapest Hotel – Best Makeup & Hairstyling

FRANCIS HANNON & MARK COULIER “The Grand Budapest Hotel” Most of the makeup in “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is subtle. Apart from turning Tilda Swinton into an entirely different person, the rest of the makeup just tends to accent certain features of a character, like Agatha’s birthmark or Edward Norton’s mustache. Or the makeup is used to comedic effect, like making Harvey Keitel bald … Read More 2015 Oscars Challenge: [12] The Grand Budapest Hotel – Best Makeup & Hairstyling

2014 Oscars Challenge: [13] Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa – One Nomination

Stephen Prouty When the Oscar nominations were announced just a few weeks ago, I think that absolutely everyone involved was surprised to see “Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa” as one of the final three to be nominated for Best Makeup and Hairstyling. Not because the film and its makeup does not deserve it, but because Jackass has never been a brand name associated with the … Read More 2014 Oscars Challenge: [13] Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa – One Nomination

2014 Oscars Challenge: [1] The Lone Ranger – Two Nominations

Joel Harlow and Gloria Pasqua-Casny For being one of the most underrated films of 2013, “The Lone Ranger” pulled in two nominations from the Academy and proved that it wasn’t so universally panned after all. Now, of the two nominations, the film’s chances rest mostly in the Best Makeup and Hairstyling category. Not only are there only two other competitors in that category (“Jackass … Read More 2014 Oscars Challenge: [1] The Lone Ranger – Two Nominations

For Your Consideration 2013: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Expect about the same showing, or even less, from this year’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”. With the same nominations it had last, the film could easily slide into Best Visual Effects, Best Production Design, and Best Makeup and Hairstyling. As with more characters involved and the visual effects of a dragon, there’s absolutely no reason this film can’t harness those same nominations, … Read More For Your Consideration 2013: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

2013 Oscars Challenge: [22] Hitchcock – One Nomination

HITCHCOCK The best part of the Oscar season is when a film like “Hitchcock” gets nominated for an Academy Award. One of the only surprising nominations of the year, the film really does have great use of Makeup and Hairstyling. Immersing Anthony Hopkins into the visage of Alfred Hitchcock is no simple task, but on-screen, you tend to forget you are watching an actor … Read More 2013 Oscars Challenge: [22] Hitchcock – One Nomination

2013 Oscars Challenge: [16] Les Misérables – Eight Nominations

LES MISÉRABLES BEST PICTURE Sadly, despite early buzzing, “Les Misérables” lost its chance of winning Best Picture when it failed to garner both a directing nomination for Tom Hooper and an Adapted Screenplay nomination, both of which are almost a prerequisite for winning the ultimate prize for Best Picture. Since “Les Misérables” failed to reel those nominations in, it will have to settle for … Read More 2013 Oscars Challenge: [16] Les Misérables – Eight Nominations
