Here Are The 2021 Nominations of the Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Guild!


When it comes to predicting the Oscars, the Guilds are usually a better precursor than the regional critics.  That’s because the guilds usually include a number of Academy members.  As such, the Guild nominations are a good indication of how the film industry and the Oscar voters are feeling about the contenders.

The Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Guild got things started yesterday, with their nominations for the best makeup and hairstyling of 2021!  There’s not really a lot of surprises below.

House of Gucci got a nomination as did The Eyes of Tammy Faye.  One would expect them to be nominated so it would have been a big deal if they had been snubbed.  But they weren’t, so who cares?

Dune got two nominations and seems a lock to pick up the most technical nominations and wins when it comes to the Oscars.

Don’t Look Up was also nominated for some reason.  Don’t Look Up is a terrible movie but I have a feeling it’s going to a contender.  Voting for it is a way to say you’re concerned about climate change without making any inconvenient changes in your life.  If Adam McKay could pick up a nomination for something as bad as Vice, he should be able to slip in with Don’t Look Up.

Anyway, here are all of the film nominees:
