MAKEUP SHORTLIST FOR OSCAR - USUAL SUSPECTS, UNUSUAL SUSPECTS


Did you see this coming? Period makeup gets rather roundly snubbed by the Academy's makeup branch, as effects, prosthetics, character makeup and a good bit of grubbiness impress voters in this first stage of the road to the Oscar. Among the expected contenders who've made it this far is a very welcome surprise - 2013 Swedish comedy The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared. This is the kind of shocker that we need more of, and hopefully this visibility will send the film toward one of the year's wackiest Oscar nominations. The seven titles are below:

The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared
Black Mass
Concussion
Legend
Mad Max: Fury Road
Mr. Holmes
The Revenant
