The Academy’s seven finalists for Best Makeup and Hairstyling at the 2016 Oscars include a critically acclaimed action-adventure, an epic Western, two gangster movies, and at least one title few, if any, awards watchers were predicting to contend: director Felix Herngren’s Swedish literary adaptation “The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared.”
Notably, neither “The Danish Girl” nor “Carol”—two of the films most favored to receive attention in this category, made the shortlist.
On January 9, members of the Academy’s makeup artists and hairstylists branch will screen a 10-minute excerpt from each of the seven shortlisted films, of which three will be nominated. This year’s Oscar nominations will be announced live on January 14,
with the ceremony to follow February 28. Read the full list of films shortlisted for Best Makeup and Hairstyling below:
