Oscars 2017: Best Makeup & Hairstyling Shortlist

They announced the Best Makeup & Hairstyling Shortlist today. I’m never quite sure how they figure these out, but that’s not my job. My job is figuring out what they’re gonna nominate.

They give you seven options, and from there, three get nominated.

Here’s what we got:

Darkest Hour
Ghost in the Shell
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
I, Tonya
Victoria & Abdul

This is a pretty strong year, theoretically.

Wonder has the elephant boy face, Guardians has a lot of blue and green people, Darkest Hour transforms Gary Oldman into Churchill, and Bright has Joel Edgerton playing an orc.

Not sure why Ghost in the Shell is here, and considering that it’s a bomb, I doubt that’ll make it. I, Tonya is all about the hairstyling and theoretically could make it. And Victoria & Abdul — makeup, wigs. Yawn.

If I’m nominating — Darkest Hour, Guardians, Wonder, with a special look to I, Tonya. But Suicide Squad won this last year, and it’s possible the Bright team is the same team. So that’s something to consider.

But there’s no way Darkest Hour doesn’t get on, right? The first Guardians was on, so that makes sense. I think you have five contenders for three spots. Good luck figuring it out. We have a month.
