Here Are The 2020 Nominations of the Makeup Artists and Hair Stylists Guild!


Here are the 2020 nominees of the Makeup Artists And Hair Stylists Guild!  Typically, if you’re trying to make out you Oscar predictions and hoping to score a 100% accuracy rating, it makes more sense to pay attention to the guilds than to the critics groups.  The critics groups can let you know what the critics like but the guilds let you know what the industry is thinking and the Oscar, after all, are not awarded by critics.  The Oscars are awarded by the industry and, Parasite’s victory aside, they’ve always been more likely to go for a film like Green Book than a film like Roma.  Looking at the nominations below, my main takeaway is that Hillbilly Elegy is going to win at least one Oscar whenever the Oscars are finally awarded.

(Seriously, this Oscar season has been going on since forever!)

The winners will be announced on April 3rd.  So, we’ve got a while to wait and consider who has the most award-worthy hair.  (Though we all know that the Oscar is going to go to Hillbilly Elegy….)
