The Academy celebrated the talented artists nominated for the Makeup and Hairstyling award in our 12th annual event spotlighting this category. The makeup artists and hairstylists nominated for Darkest Hour, Victoria & Abdul and Wonder joined Academy governors Lois Burwell, Leonard Engelman and Kathryn L. Blondell to discuss their work on the three films, and presented photographs and displays to demonstrate their craft. The event also included a screening of the “bake-off” reels that Academy branch members viewed before voting on the three nominated films.
