In this category, only three movies are trying for the prize. This is often about elaborate and hair and prosthetics and battle carnage…hence such big-budget entries as “Star Trek Beyond” and “Suicide Squad,” which both won their respective categories at the Makeup and Hairstyling Guild Awards.
But the branch included, in a sign of its popularity, Swedish foreign-language nominee “A Man Called Ove” (Music Box). It’s the same team, Love Larson and Eva Von Bahr, who did the makeup for last year’s surprise Swedish nomination, “The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared.”
Contenders (in order of likelihood to win)
1. “Star Trek Beyond” Joel Harlow and Richard Alonzo
2. “Suicide Squad” Alessandro Bertolazzi, Giorgio Gregorini and Christopher Nelson
3. “A Man Called Ove” Eva von Bahr and Love Larson
