    2. Silence
    3. Star Trek Beyond

    4. Arrival
    5. Miles Ahead
    6. The Birth of a Nation

  • Luke McGowan

    Suicide Squad should still make a nomination, the makeup on Killer Croc alone deserves it

  • jd

    Nocturnal Animals unique and visually stunning should be up there for art direction,makeup,cinematography and lead actor Jake Gyllenhaal and supporting actors and Amy Adams.

  • Trevor Pacelli

    1. Tale of Tales (Google it, it’s a French film)
    2. Suicide Squad
    3. Deadpool

    4. The Birth of a Nation
    5. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
    6. Silence
    7. Florence Foster Jenkins

    • Tale of Tales is an Italian production.

      • Trevor Pacelli

        My mistake, thanks for pointing that out.

  • Winduct Hellas

    3 time Oscar winner Greg Cannom might get surprisingly nominated for his incredible work in the two Indian movies “Fan” and “Kapoor and Sons”. Check them out. A lot of prosthetics.

  • Jose Gallegos

    Updated Shortlist was just announced:

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

    • I swear, this category never seizes to blow my expectations away. I haven’t even heard of A Man Called Ove until now.

      • Stein-Erik Rutledal

        It’s Sweden’s Best Foreign Picture submission.

  • Tobey

    think it will be star trek beyond, florence foster jenkins and deadpool with suicide squad close behind. Surprised fantastic beasts, silence and jackie weren’t included in the shortlist

  • 1. Deadpool
    2. Suicide Squad
    3. A Man Called Ove

    4. Florence Foster Jenkins
    5. The Dressmaker
    6. Star Trek Beyond
    7. Hail, Caesar!

  • Johnson

    1. Star Trek Beyond
    2. Suicide Squad
    3. A Man Called Ove

    The rest. Or so I believe.

  • Braxton Newby

    1. Deadpool
    2. Star Trek Beyond
    3. A Man Called Ove

  • Bryce

    Deadpool
    Star Trek Beyond
    Suicide Squad

    It goes to Star Trek, but, it seems like I am wrong every time with this category because the film thar deserves the win always gets snubbed, so, as a backup, I am going with Deadpool.

  • Adventurer

    Star Trek’s the clear winner here.

    • I wish I could agree with you. I must have missed something as most of the special makeup effects on the aliens in Star Trek (aside from the white girl) looked downright ugly and not very convincing. You could tell that it was a bunch of actors underneath a bunch of prosthetics. This is honestly not a good lineup of finalists this year, but the only one with truly convincing looking makeup was Deadpool.

      • Adventurer

        I disagree really. Deadpool was full of faux looking gore. It was far from being convincing to me atleast.

        • Aem

          Not sure gore qualifies as makeup and hairstyling when it’s CGI

          • Adventurer

            The gore utilised make-up, which was then enchanced by CG.

  • Nikko Cartel Clar

    Deadpool
    Star Trek
    A Man Called Ove

  • Pokermask

    Here are my predictions for Best Makeup and Hairstyling at the moment:
    Deadpool
    Florence Foster Jenkins
    Star Trek Beyond

    Top choice: Florence Foster Jenkins
