Awards Season: Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards

Mmm, hair and makeup.  C’mon; what would American Hustle be without Bale’s magnificent Chia Pet combover?  I’m not ashamed to admit that the hair and makeup awards are my favorite part of Oscar night.  So when I heard about the Guild giving out it’s own awards?  Heck yeah I had to share.

Love that the Guild breaks down the awards, with Contemporary, Period and my favorite, Special Effects.  They also have separate categories for Film, TV and Live Theater.  Hooray for the members working on Key and Peele for getting nods; that’s a show that deserves more buzz.  And y’all know I’m already rooting for Greg Nicotero to win for SFX makeup for his work on The Walking Dead.

Awards will be handed out February 15th, 2014.  Congrats to all nominees!
