THE CONTENDERS: Best Makeup

Back to THE CONTENDERS

9/19 Thoughts: Nothing much to say here. “Albert Nobbs” seems to me more impressive for its LACK of makeup than for being transformative or anything, while films like “The Iron Lady” and “J. Edgar” will surely be stunners int hat department.

Good bets:
1. “J. Edgar”

Other possibilities:
2. “The Iron Lady”
3. “The Artist”
4. “Anonymous”
5. “Green Lantern”
6. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2”
7. “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”
8. “Albert Nobbs”
9. “Captain America: The First Avenger”
10. “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”

Dark horses:
11. “X-Men: First Class”
12. “Hugo”
13. “War Horse”
14. “My Week with Marilyn”
15. “A Dangerous Method”

The rest of the field:
“Coriolanus”
“Cowboys & Aliens”
“The Eye of the Storm”
“The Flowers of War”
“Immortals”
“Jane Eyre”
“Red Riding Hood”
“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”
“Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”
“Super 8”
“Thor”
“Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy”
“Warrior”
“W.E.”
