Oscars 2017: Makeup and Hairstyling

I'm back writing for The Lamb Devours The Oscars , this time I'm looking at the category for Makeup and Hairstyling. In 1981 the Academy received complaints that the work of makeup artists on The Elephant Man wouldn't be recognised. In response, they created The Academy Award for Best Makeup. Before this, their work was only recognised through special achievement awards. In 1993 the award was adjusted to include hairstylists whose work contributed "greatly to the appearance and effect of the characters". There are usually only three nominations for this award. Previous winners include: Dallas Buyers Club (2013) - Adruitha Lee and Robin Matthews The Iron Lady (2011) - Mark Coulier and J. Roy Helland Star Trek (2009) - Barney Burman, Mindy Hall and Joel Harlow La Vie en Rose (2007) - Didier Lavergne and Jan Archibald How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) - Rick Baker and Gail Ryan Men In Black (1997) - Rick Baker and David Leroy Anderson Mrs Doubt
