Makeup Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Awards preview: Which Oscar nominees will win here first?

Two of the five Oscar nominees for Best Makeup and Hairstyling — “The Batman” and “Elvis” — contend in three categories apiece at the guild awards on Feb. 11. Another contender, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” has a pair of bids while “The Whale” has a single nomination. The fifth Oscar contender, “All Quiet on the Western Front,” was snubbed by the Makeup Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Awards.

Last year marked the first time in the nine-year history of these guild awards that the eventual Oscar winner was shut out here first. “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” lost both period/character races (hairstyling to “Being the Ricardos” and makeup to Oscar rival “Cruella”) plus the special effects category to another Oscar contender, “Coming 2 America.” The other two Oscar nominees — “House of Gucci” and “Dune” — were also overlooked by the guild despite three and two bids respectively.

Our exclusive odds predict that five films will each take home one award. “Elvis” will win the period makeup race while “The Batman” will take the contemporary prize and Oscar frontrunner “The Whale” will walk off with the special effects trophy. On the hairstyling side, we expect “Blond” to claim the period prize with “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” winning the contemporary honor.
