With a shortlisting in the Best Makeup & Hairstyling category, we have a fairly clear picture of what’s being considered. In my picks, I’m leaning towards the films that will likely receive other awards love. Since there’s only three nominations in this category, four of them won’t make the cut. “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Revenant” feel like safe bets to me, while the transformation of Johnny Depp into Whitey Bulgar in “Black Mass” feels like it has a shot, especially if Depp gets nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role. “Legend” and “The 100 Year Old Man” are a little too fringe worthy to be safe bets and although “Concussion” and “Mr. Holmes” could show up in other categories, their make-up feels less substantial than the others.
- “The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared”
- “Black Mass”
- “Mad Max: Fury Road”
- “Mr. Holmes”
- “The Revenant”
