Over 700 people worldwide predicted these writing winners for five MUAHS film categories. Our top scorer got four of those categories correct: “Nocturnal Animals” (film contemporary make-up), “Suicide Squad” (film period/character make-up), “Star Trek Beyond” (film special make-up effects), and “Hail Caesar!” (film period/character hair styling). His only miss was choosing “Nocturnal Animals” over actual winner “La La Land” (film contemporary hair styling).
