Hair, Makeup Stylists honor “Guardians 2,” “Pitch Perfect 3” — and “Darkest Hour and “I, Tonya”


Hollywood’s assorted guilds are handing out their peer-recognized best work over the past year in film and TV. And today it was the Hair and Makeup Stylists who honored “The Crown” and “Feud” and “American Horror Story” and “Big Little Lies,” and of course “Game of Thrones” on the TV side.

Film? A category honoring best contemporary makeup went to “Pitch Perfect 3.” Not exactly an “awards season” favorite. Nor was “Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” which had the best hair of any contemporary movie of last year.

Really? Does Jessica Chastain know about that?

Margot Robbie and Allison Janney transformed in “I, Tonya,” and the guys got period perfect near-mullets in that one, too. Best period hair styling.

Best period makeup? That would be “Darkest Hour,” turning Gary Oldman into Winston and Kristen Thomas into Clementine Churchill. Hiding Ben Mendelsohn’s natural villainy and making him George VI was impressive, too.
