Oscars 2018: Best Makeup & Hairstylist Shortlist

Okay, Best Makeup & Hairstyling is next. Why? Because it’s easy. And I can knock it out in like, four minutes.

This is pretty simple: they decide whatever their criteria are, and they shortlist seven films. Of the seven, three will be nominated.

That’s about it, really. We get seven, we guess three. And there we are.

Here is your shortlist for Best Makeup & Hairstyling:

Black Panther
Bohemian Rhapsody
Mary Queen of Scots
Stan & Ollie

Well shit, this is an interesting one.

Mary, Queen of Scots was made for this category.

Suspiria, if it’s not nominated, you need to not have this category anymore.

And Vice… who the fuck doesn’t nominate Vice when they made Christian Bale look like Dick Cheney?

Did I just figure this one out without even looking at all the shorlisted films?

Oh, Black Panther is there.

Please, dear god, please don’t just nominate Black Panther. I mean, sure, in a weaker year, I’m not opposed to it. But I feel like they’re just gonna nominate it for the sake of nominating it.

Border, haven’t seen, so I can’t comment. Maybe it’s great.

Bohemian Rhapsody seems unlikely.

Stan & Ollie… they did put Reilly in the fat suit and made him look like Hardy, but I feel like that might be Hitchcock from what, 2012? I don’t think they nominate it.

I honestly think: Black Panther, Mary Queen of Scots, Suspiria, Vice. Your category will be three of those four. If I’m guessing, Black Panther is not in there, but in actuality, I feel like one of the three ends up getting left off in favor of it. But we’ll see.

Look at that. That was fast. Bring on the next shortlist.

    Black Panther had good makeup. Why do you hate it so much?
