Who's surprised? Mad Max: Fury Road takes three nominations from the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild award nominations, leading the field. Guild voters disagreed with the Academy, shunning five of the seven films from its bake-off list entirely, including its two eventual fellow nominees alongside Mad Max. A whole bunch of films all received two nominations. Winners will be announced on the 20th of February. Check out their choices below:
