2022 OSCARS PREDICTIONS:
BEST MAKEUP AND HAIRSTYLING

UPDATED: Feb 10, 2022

AWARDS PREDICTION COMMENTARY

The packaging of Jessica Chastain, who is one of the leading contenders for best actress for “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” and the BAFTA and Critics Choice-winning makeup and hairstyling team has kept it leading the discussion. “Coming 2 America” led the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild (MUAHS, IATSE Local 706), dominating the night with wins for best contemporary make-up and hairstyling, in a surprise win, beating out Oscar frontrunners like “Dune,” “Tammy Faye” and “House of Gucci” for best special make-up effects.

That could be the upset waiting in the wings.

Will win: “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” (Searchlight Pictures) – Linda Dowds, Stephanie Ingram and Justin Raleigh

Should win: “Dune” (Warner Bros) – Donald Mowat, Love Larson, Eva von Bahr
Should have been here: “Last Night in Soho” (Focus Features) – Lizzie Yianni Georgiou
