There was no official award for Best Make Up this year so I have made my own selections.
My Nominations: Jason And The Argonauts. Cleopatra. The Birds. The Comedy Of Terrors
Jason And The Argonauts is most commonly, and unsurprisingly, remembered mostly for Harryhausen’s groundbreaking special effects, but a fair amount of work went into the Make-up too. Cleopatra obviously has stellar work in all departments, Make-Up included (Alberto De Rossi, Vivienne Walker, Robert J Schiffer), while The Birds uses Make-Up effectively in a few scenes to heighten the fear in the aftermath of recurring attacks (Virginia Darcy, Howard Smit). Finally, The Comedy Of Terrors employs a variety of well worn and innovative techniques thanks to Betty Pedettri, Carlie Taylor, and Verne Langdon.
My Winner: Jason And The Argonauts.
