Achievement in makeup and hairstyling nominees:
BORDER – Göran Lundström and Pamela Goldammer
MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS – Jenny Shircore, Marc Pilcher and Jessica Brooks
VICE – Greg Cannom, Kate Biscoe and Patricia Dehaney
- VICE (Cannom, Biscoe and Dehaney) – It almost feels like cheating to pick the film with the lead transformed through latex, but Bale becomes Dick Chaney so believably that he was only going to get beaten by John C Reilly as old Oliver Hardy in Stan & Ollie, but as that film wasn’t nominated then Vice wins by default.
The Academy Award Winner:
|A security guard with a strange gift meets a similar man, causing her to reevaluate her life and the world. It all goes very dark and a bit supernatural as the film goes on, but it was quite mesmerising all the same.
|Mary Queen of Scots
|Two stunning performances from Ronan and Robbie complement a beautifully crafted (if a little one sided) retelling of how England and Scotland finally became united.
|Initially Vice appears to be just an excuse to re-do the Big Short formula and for Bale to dust off his Batman voice, but in fact it is another fascinating docu-dramedy from the master of this new genre, Adam McKay.
