Mark Coulier and J. Roy Helland reaped their first Best Makeup bid for transforming Meryl Streep into Margaret Thatcher at various ages from her forties to her eighties in “The Iron Lady.” Four years ago, the makeup artists who turned Marion Cotillard into Edith Piaf for “La Vie en Rose” won this award.
None of the first seven films in the “Harry Potter” merited mention in this category. That does not bode well for the chances of first-time contenders Nick Dudman, Amanda Knight and Lisa Tomblin.
Nominees Glenn Close and Janet McTeer are women passing themselves off as men in “Albert Nobbs.” This is the fourth nomination for Matthew Mungle who won with his first bid for “Dracula” in 1992. His colleagues, Martial Corneville and Lynn Johnston, are Oscar rookies.
