Best Make Up – 1968

My Nominations: Planet Of The Apes. Night Of The Living Dead. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

John Chambers won an honorary award for his work on Planet Of The Apes this year, adding fuel to the fire of those who believed a dedicated category and award was deserved. His apes have an all too human look, yet the makeup is flawless and on a huge scale. Not too many of the other movies released in 1968 raised the Make-Up bar or changed the game significantly, but both Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with the nightmarish Child Catcher, and Night Of The Living Dead with its assortment of zombies featuring pasty, yet ultra-effective looks.

My Winner: Planet Of The Apes

    Great post 🙂 I believe Planet of the Apes awarded a special Oscar for make-up that year. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
