Suicide Squad Nominated for an Oscar for Best Hair and Makeup Effects


We reported earlier this month that composer Steven Price was in the running to earn an Oscar for his score for Suicide Squad and now Suicide Squad has been officially nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for Best Make-Up and Hairstyles.

Suicide Squad used practical effects to keep the budget low and allowing for the actors to do with little interference of CGI effects and it worked very well.

January 7th is when the members of the Academy will be shown 10 minutes of each films best work, with three of the films being selected and featured in the 88th Academy Awards ceremony. This is huge as comic book films are generally forgotten at the Oscars, even less so by a film that was critically panned.

The nominees:

“The Dressmaker”
“Florence Foster Jenkins”
“Hail, Caesar!”
“A Man Called Ove”
“Star Trek Beyond”
“Suicide Squad”

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
