Oscars 2018: Makeup & Hairstylists Guild Nominations

Here we go, the one guild you’ve all been waiting for — Makeup & Hairstyling!

We have a shortlist for this, so really all these nominations are going to be viewed through the lens of that. But hey, a few years ago we didn’t have this guild to help us out, so really anything helps.

Just as a reminder, your shortlist is: Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody, Border, Mary Queen of Scots, Stan & Ollie, Suspiria and Vice. BAFTA nominated Bohemian Rhapsody, Mary Queen of Scots, Stan & Ollie and Vice and BFCA nominated Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody, Mary Queen of Scots, Suspiria and Vice. All worth knowing if you’re trying to guess which three will end up being nominated. This is the final piece of that puzzle, because it’s all the help we’re gonna get.

Here are your 2018 Makeup & Hairstylist Guild nominees: (more…)

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.

90th Academy Awards Recap

That’s another Oscar season in the books. I won’t lie — this was the hardest one I’ve ever had. Not in terms of picking and all that (because, spoiler alert: I did fucking great), but in terms of everything else. I honestly didn’t think I was gonna make it through to the end. I barely got my nominations picks done in time. I don’t even remember much of anything I wrote on here since early January. With the amount of stuff that was going on, I’m honestly surprised it all got done. Fortunately the one thing I was able to put some thought into since January was the giant picks article, which, as you’ll see… worked out pretty well. I will let a lot of things fall apart, but I won’t let you guys go into your Oscar pool unprepared.

Anyway, these 90th Academy Awards are in the books, and overall, while an entertaining night, and one that didn’t feel as slow as some other years (even during the segments that slowed the show down), not a particularly surprising one. So much of the night felt exactly like it was meant to go. And the moments where I was wrong, I knew what would win instead.

There’s not a whole lot for me to say about these awards. Or maybe that’s just the exhaustion talking, knowing it’s finally all over. Who’s to say, really? Let’s find out together, shall we? (more…)


The 90th Academy Awards Scorecard Ballot

So rather than just do that plain old “guessing winners” thing, I’ve decided to make my Oscar picking more complicated. Rather than having a score out of 24, I’ve now also begun doing this, which grades me on how well I can pick an entire category and not just the winner.

The way the Scorecard Ballot works is, you take every category and rank all the nominees in terms of their likelihood of winning. If the nominee ranked #1 wins, you get 1 point. 2 points for a #2, 3 points for a #3 and so on. A perfect score would be a 24 (meaning your #1s in every category won). Ties make things confusing, but it’s only happened 6 times in 89 years, so let’s just figure that won’t happen and deal with it if it does.

Ideally, most people get between 16/24 and 18/24 each year. I try to get between 18/24 and 20/24. So, of the categories you get wrong (say 7, for argument’s sake)… you want your #2 to win, so that way you’re only +7 over the minimum of 24. It’s like golf. Okay, sure, some #3s can win. It happens. But only like two. Then you’re +9. That’s reasonable. To me, a good year on the Scorecard ballot is a +6. +8 is fine, +10 isn’t great, but acceptable, and the higher you go, the worse you dod.

It’s more interesting to me, since I’m about the all-around analysis than just straight up winners. To me, the words “that’s a #4” mean something. To most people, they don’t. So this is my way of quantifying that specificity.

So, for those of you who wanna try a Scorecard Ballot for this year, here is mine for the upcoming ceremony: (more…)


The B+ Oscar Ballot: The Quick Picks

I put up my giant article already, but for those of you who don’t respect me (or, thinking positive, those of you who already ready it and just wanted the cheat sheet version), here’s everything I think you should take and what I’m taking in a much simpler version. Not only do I give you the extended editions, but I’m also giving you the cliff notes. (What a guy, right?)

I’ll also, in about twenty minutes, put up my Scorecard ballot for easy reference as well. That is, for those of you who wanna attempt that way of picking the Oscars. (The rankings here are not the same as my Scorecard ballot, FYI.)

Anyway, here they are, the quick picks for the 90th Academy Awards: (more…)


The B+ Oscar Ballot: Guide to the 90th Academy Awards

Ever like something so much you’d do it for free? Hi, I’m Mike DiPrisco and I’m here to talk to you about Match.com…

Admit it, that was funny.

But really, though. I’m so into the Oscars I’m about to give you 48,000 words of shit you don’t need, and the kind of analysis that, if this were sports, people would make you pay for. And I’m doing it purely out of the goodness of my own insanity. (Mostly because otherwise no one would listen to it.)

You know all those texts you guys have been sending me the past couple weeks? Well, this is all the shit I’ve got stored up that I didn’t tell you about when I answered you. If all you wanted was what I thought was gonna win — here’s way more of that than you ever needed. And if all you wanted was for me to help you win your Oscar pool, then well… same. Though I’m also helping tens of other people do the same thing, so let’s hope you don’t know anyone else who reads this site.

I’m not so much giving you all the answers (because I don’t have all the answers) as much as I’m giving you all the information you need to make the most informed decision about what you think is going to win, and helping you along with what I, your friendly neighborhood ne’er-do-well, think will win. In a way, you might say I’m giving you all the clues.

Oscars 2017: Makeup & Hairstylist Guild Awards

They announced the Makeup & Hairstylist Guild Awards tonight. You know, just like you’ve all been waiting for.

I won’t waste time, because I know you’re all so eager to find out who won. So here they are:

Best Period and/or Character Makeup: Darkest Hour

Best Period and/or Character Hairstyling: I, Tonya

Best Contemporary Makeup: Pitch Perfect 3

Best Contemporary Hairstyling: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Best Special Makeup Effects: Darkest Hour

Only one of these winners is nominated at the Oscars, in case there was any doubt what’s gonna win there.

I think the biggest surprise out of all of this is that you found out they had a guild for this category.
