A few days back the guild had their award ceremony and for the first time, the event red carpet was live-streamed from The Novo by Microsoft at L. A. and was hosted by Frankie Grande.  If you wish to check the red carpet event watch video at the end of post.

Frankie Grande also hosted the ceremony.  The night opened with a solo performance by him accompanied by pianist Jeremy Weinglass.

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

The Make-Up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild (MUAHS, IATSE Local 706) have announced nominations for outstanding achievements in motion pictures, television, commercials and live theater during 2017. Winners will be honored at the black-tie annual MUAHS Guild Awards ceremony on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at The Novo by Microsoft at L.A. Live, hosted by Comedienne Loni Love.

The announcement was made by MUAHS President Sue Cabral-Ebert.  “Congratulations to all the nominees who should be very proud of their extraordinary creations! We had a record number of artisan entries this year, and we look forward to celebrating their unique achievements and exceptional bodies of work,” said Cabral-Ebert.

As previously announced, legendary Academy Award nominated actor Gary Oldman will be honored with the 2018 Distinguished Artisan Award. Oscar winning Make-Up Artist Greg Cannom  and Emmy Winning Hair Stylist Mary Guerrero will receive the Guild’s Lifetime Achievement Awards. Additional awards will honor nominees for outstanding achievements in motion pictures, television, commercials and live theater.

Besides special make-up effects, find categories are not easy to guess winner, possible Oscar nominees or Oscar winner; so, my best guess is there are three films with outstanding special make-up effects: Wonder, Darkest Hour and The Shape of Water.  For other categories have no idea, except that I, Tonya make-up and hair is so good (add costumes) that you (visually) hate characters and end-up disliking film -yes, happened to me.
