  1. What? No J. EDGAR?
    DiCaprio and Hammer looked exactly like the Muppets Statler and Waldorf.
    It was uncanny.
    Unless they were supposed to be someone else…

    1. ROTFLMAO!

      If you hadn’t beat me to it, I would have posed/posted the exact same question!

  2. . So happy they actually give awards now for makeup. Way back when I began as a hairstylist in 1960 there were so many wonderful makeup and hair films and nary an award. Finally the time came and now the awards are here. A little too late for Charlie Schram and some like that, but at least here.

  3. Albert Nobbs? PLEASE. The make-up made Glenn Close look just like… Glenn Close. At least J. Edgar isn’t in the list, as its make-up was beyond atrocious.
