2019 Oscar Predictions: MAKEUP & HAIRSTYLING (February)

The Academy has has an odd history with this category. It’s bizarrely stuck at only three nominees when year to year shows there are more than enough contenders to flesh it out to five. Between traditional hairstyles of Victorian period pieces to elaborate fat suits and facial prosthetics, it remains a mystery that the Makeup & Hairstyling branch hasn’t made …
