‘The Hobbit,’ ‘Les Miserables,’ ‘Lincoln’ among semi-finalists for Best Makeup at Oscars

Many of the technical categories at the Academy Awards have several rounds of voting before the final nominees are determined. One of these so-called “bake-offs” takes place in the newly named Makeup and Hairstyling race.  

On Saturday, the academy announced the seven films still in contention for Best Makeup and Hairstyling. Members of the branch will gather at the academy on Jan. 5 to screen 10-minute segments from these semi-finalists and vote for their top three. These will be the nominees revealed, along with the other competitive categories, on Jan. 10. 

The winner has typically been the film with the most extensive prosthetic makeup, usually to create creatures for sci-fi and fantasy films (“The Wolfman,” “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”), or to age and transform actors in biopics (“La Vie en Rose,” “Frida”). Last year’s winner was the biopic “The Iron Lady,” which used makeup to turn Meryl Streep into Margaret Thatcher, past and present.

Two of Peter Jackson‘s films in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy — “The Fellowship of the Ring” and “Return of the King” — won this award. Not surprisingly, the first film in “The Hobbit” series, “An Unexpected Journey,” is contending this year. 

Also in the running are “Lincoln,” which sees the transformation of Daniel Day-Lewis into America’s 16th president and “Les Miserables,” which does the seemingly impossible and makes Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman unattractive.

The most noticeable snub was “Cloud Atlas,” which saw the likes of Tom Hanks and Halle Berry playing six very different characters of varying ages and ethnicities. 

The seven films in contention for three slots are:

Hitchcock
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Les Miserables
“Lincoln”
Looper” 
Men in Black 3
Snow White and the Huntsman

  2. @Matthew White: I never understood what was so racist about the Cloud Atlas’ portrayal. The movie had Caucasians, Afro-Americans and Asians in their cast and at some point pretty much all of them were masked into some other race. Hiring Asian actors to portray some of those characters would’ve kinda defeated the whole purpose of the movie, so they did the best job they could. Which wasn’t much. Nevertheless, I still think that they would’ve deserved a nod from the Academy. It was an impressive effort.

  3. I personally am fine with Cloud Atlas’ snub. I admire the ambition, but the make-up couldn’t always match the intention. It’s fine if they want to do the interracial thing in the future, but trying to change ethnicities or genders in the past never looked convincing. Even the future stuff didn’t really work a whole lot. I appreciate the desire to do different things, but there were much better overall make-up jobs this year. I’m pushing for Lincoln, Les Mis and The Hobbit myself.
