2017 MUAHS Annual Awards Winners

Last night was a busy night in Hollywood as there were three awards ceremony to attend; but, perhaps one of the most colorful has to be from the Make-up and Hair guild that gave awards to some unexpected winners while snubbing my favorites (lol).

Most interesting is the Make Up top award winner as went to a film with no Oscar nomination and great make-up in one of the "movies"; see, I believe there were 2 "movies" in Nocturnal Animals, one very unpleasant to watch and another very pleasant with absolutely great esthetics -the later has fantastic make-up.

On the other hand, Best Period and/or Character Make-up went to a film with an Oscar nomination, Suicide Squad, a film with obvious fantastic make-up but this win could mean an Oscar win?  Don't know as guild has not many members that vote in the Academy, at least when we compare it against the largest actor, director or writers guild.  Then perhaps another MUAHS award winner, Star Trek Beyond, could have better chances to win among all Academy voters.

To check winners in all categories go here.  Winners are below in *BLUE.

Today Sue Cabral-Ebert, President of the Make-up Artists and Hair Stylistst Guild (MUAHS), announced the nominees in twenty-three (23) categories honoring make-up artists and hair stylists outstanding achievements in motion pictures, television, commercials and live theater.
