I am a little noncommittal in this category, but I am going to come down on the side of Nine to win, although I would not be disappointed by a Parnassus victory.
Finally, let's take a look at Best Makeup. This award came into being in 1981 when An American Werewolf in London won for Rick Baker's great work. Over the years the award has gone to a blend of traditionally dramatic films and genre films, including horror. I am glad to see that this category will occasionally go outside the box and award genre films.
This year's nominees are: Il divo: Aldo Signoretti, Vittorio Sodano; Star Trek: Barney Burman, Mindy Hall, Joel Harlow; The Young Victoria: John Henry Gordon, Jenny Shircore
I have not seen Il divo or The Young Victoria, but I do not want either of them to win. The look of both of these films is very traditional, based on the trailers and a couple of clips. Neither one of them stand out. On the other hand Star Trek takes some chances with its alien creations and with its transformation of Eric Bana. I am hoping this one goes to the science fiction flick.
Be sure to tune in Sunday March 7, 2010 to see who wins!
