Makeup Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Award Nominations Led by ‘Bombshell’ and ‘Rocketman’

"Bombshell" and "Rocketman" get a head start in the Oscar race for Best Makeup and Hairstyling with three nominations apiece.

“Bombshell,” the zeitgeist-grabbing Fox News drama, and “Rocketman,” the Elton John musical fantasy biopic, led the seventh annual Makeup Artists and Hair Stylists Guild award nominations with three apiece. (The MUAHS Guild Awards will be held January 11, 2020 at The Novo by Microsoft at L.A. Live.) “Bombshell” took contemporary makeup, special makeup effects, and contemporary hairstyling. “Rocketman,” by contrast, took period honors for makeup and hairstyling along with special makeup effects.

Meanwhile, Best Picture Oscar contenders “Joker”(period makeup and contemporary hairstyling) and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” (period makeup and period hairstyling) nabbed two nominations apiece along with “Dolemite Is My Name” (period makeup and period hairstyling), “Downton Abbey” (period makeup and period hairstyling), “Hustlers” (contemporary makeup and contemporary hairstyling), and “John Wick: Parabellum” (contemporary makeup and contemporary hairstyling). Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” which predominantly boasts innovative VFX de-aging from Industrial Light & Magic, scored a nomination for special makeup effects.

In terms of the Best Makeup and Hairstyling Oscar race, these nominations bode well for frontrunners “Bombshell” (boasting the brilliant prosthetic work on Charlize Theron’s Megyn Kelly and John Lithgow’s Roger Ailes by “Darkest Hour” Oscar-winner Kazu Hiro), “Rocketman,” “Joker,” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” And the race also provides hope for “Dolemite Is My Name,” “Downton Abbey,” “Hustlers,” and “The Irishman.” Missing in action, though, was “Judy,” an Oscar hopeful featuring the astonishing transformation of Renée Zellweger as middle-aged screen legend Judy Garland. But this might have to do with the smaller scope of the work by makeup and hairstylist Jeremy Woodhead (who is not a guild member).
