Take a good long look at that sign. Those proportions are correct. But things are looking up. The LA Times’…
I was just thinking a couple of days ago how lucky Woody Allen has been to have had the…
You know that big project the Academy is involved in? It just got a whopper of donation, $25 mil from…
Uh, I would think:
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
12 Years a Slave
The Lone Ranger
Dallas Buyers Club
Saving Mr. Banks (as much as Emma Thompson doth protest her coiff)
August: Osage County
The Great Gatsby
Mandela, if it shows him aging
Thor: The Dark World
And maybe surprise inclusions of The Fifth Estate, The Counselor, Black Nativity, Diana, Gangster Squad, and Movie 43…oh, dear lord.
No showing for The Hobbit, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Rush or 12 Years a Slave. WOW. Guess I’m gonna have to rethink this…
American Hustle, Bad Grandpa, and The Lone Ranger? Maybe Dallas Buyers Club or The Great Gatsby. I’d be very surprised to see The Hunger Games or Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters get in here.
I’m very surprised The Hobbit, 12 Years, The Butler, and Rush are not here.
What movies was this branch watching??? Jesus
The winner should be CATCHING FIRE. 12 YEARS A SLAVE deserved consideration, the work is striking (literally, the noun)
Wow. My predictions for the nominations were The Hobbit, The Butler, and Rush…but none of them even made it on the shortlist.
I guess the nominees will be The Lone Ranger, The Great Gatsby, and Dallas Buyers Club.
Oh yeah RUSH. Damn why is not?!
Not having The Hobbit is just ridiculous.
But I’m very happy with The Lone Ranger being here. No mater how bad the movie was, the makeup was just great, and those artist must not be ignored on the count that the movie itself was bad.
This short list is bizarre to say the least. But considering they prefered that Anthony Hopkins transformation over Daniel Day Lewis’ one… This is truly no surprise.
Well… Bye Bye an Oscar for The Weinstein Company.
This is kind of an awful list.
The makeup branch continues to travel on its own wavelength. Really not surprised with these results.
American Hustle was the cover for the Hair and Makeup Guild fall issue. Not surprised it made short list but am surprised 12 years got snubbed? First of many?
I forgot Rush myself, and WOW, you all are right, the Oscar should have been between The Hobbit, Rush, The Butler, 12YAS, and maybe Dallas Buyers Club. You could say there was little makeup used in 12YAS until the ending that some felt was rushed.
But perhaps this has become the Hairstyling Oscar? Hunger Games, Gatsby, and especially American Hustle (without having seen it) are all about the hair more than the makeup. When they changed the Oscar last year, did they let in too many hairstylists? Prosthetic makeup is really getting the shaft.
Remember if CG had any part in the make up process, it is deemed ineligible. That could be why the hobbit, etc is not there. Although 12 years was stunning
This list makes no sense whatsoever. Bad Grandpa over The Hobbit,12 Years a Slave, and The Butler? What nonsense.
@Filmboymichael. Hobbit must have been eligible given that An Unexpected Journey was nominated in the category last year.
Rigged! I’m calling it now. Gatsby, Grandpa and Witch Hunters don’t deserve to be on this list at all. And Hobbit, 12 Years, heck Elysium all deserved a nom more than any of those overthetop piecedtogether bits a nonsense.
Does anyone think The Lone Ranger could get a nomination for score? I didn’t see it, but it looks like it could have had fancy orchestral music…yes?
Scrap that. It’s not eligible. Awkward.
No, The Hobbit is genuinely real makeup and hair. No CGI there. Utterly ridiculous. Who knows if the people who voted for these nominees even saw all the movies? Maybe a lot of people didn’t vote? Maybe it would work better if fewer people make the nominations, some kind of committee that can narrow films down to the best achievements of the year? But then that too has its drawbacks, if someone like Harvey can exert his influence over a committee. There’s really no way that they could do this that would work perfectly. It’s so upsetting and frustrating, and this is just the shortlist almost 1 month to the day before nominations.
Are you kidding me? Bad Grandpa deserves to be nominated of course. Do you people realize that the old guy was Johnny Knoxville?
Methinks Jackass could totally win this, would be refreshing! I’d vote for it, unless Gatsby also makes the cut.
It is interesting to see this list without 12YAS. It didn’t even make the shortlist. Can this be a reflection of a sort of backwards attitude within the Academy towards the film?
No need to worry, if you look at their nominees over the years, there is very little overlap with BP:
Over the last 10 years, they nominated 30 films, only 4 of them were BP nominees and only 1 of them won BP (LOTR: ROTK).
I am very excited for the Hairstyling and Makeup branch’s effort to recognize such a wide variety of films, regardless of genre.
I especially hope Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa is nominated, because (and say what you will about the film overall) Johnny Knoxville’s do-over as Irving Zisman is near-flawless!
oh my good peter o’toole is dead!! DEAD! why is it always the best that leaves the first? so young, so young… first Paul Walker, now this! I don’t know if I can take it any more…
can anybody remind me why 12YAS is being hyped for makeup, i can’t seem to remember why it should’ve been nominated. The only makeup i can think of is chiwetel aging a little towards the end and that is not something to be nominated.
No Hobbit, Star Trek Into Darkness, World War Z, Thor 2, Eylsium, Evil Dead? Really? Aside from Hansel and Gretal, really not Sci-fi/Fantasy/Horror which normally makes it on didn’t even get a short list.
In the fact this category is the less make-up of all oscar categories. This branch doesn’t have afraid of showing the dark side of Hollywood. Hollywood is honoring 12 Years A Slave in a lot of categories including Best Picture but they honour the make-up of Lone Ranger. In this film, they put a cleft in the face of the villain to identify his “tortured soul” when the protagonist uses a mask. Hollywood loves to teach us all to not discriminate people based on race or sexual orientation but they promote lookism. This is called hypocrisy.
