NEWSFLASH! THE WOLFMAN WINS OSCAR FOR BEST MAKE-UP!


FROM THE LOS ANGELES TIMES ONLINE:

6:57 pm "The Wolfman" won the Oscar for makeup at the 83rd Academy Awards on Sunday night. Rick Baker and Dave Elsey received the award for their work on the film about a man who transforms into a werewolf. This was Baker's 12th Oscar nomination and seventh win. He won his first Oscar for makeup in 1982 for his work on another werewolf film, "An American Werewolf in London." This is Elsey's second nomination and first win.

"The Wolfman" was competing against "Barney’s Version" and "The Way Back".

I really enjoyed this take on the Universal horror classic so I'm happy to see it recognized. Of course, once again the Academy baffles me because while Rick Baker was a major contributor to Wolfie's look, much of it was CGI, which frustrated Baker no end.
