Best Make-Up – 1981

Official Nominations: An American Werewolf In London. Heartbeeps

The first Official Award for this category saw its most honoured recipient pick up the win – Rick Baker for his game changing work in An American Werewolf In London. The only other nominee was another legend in the game, the late great Stan Winston for the barely seen Heartbeeps. It’s probably best it remains that way.

My Nominations: An American Werewolf In London. The Evil Dead. The Howling. Wolfen. Clash Of The Titans.

The Howling does a less impressive job than our winner because our winner focuses on much more than just the Werewolf or the kill effects, while Wolfen takes it down a notch again. The Evil Dead cares not for notches and smashes its way through every wall and ceiling of norms and expectations but in front of it. In another year it would be a definitive winner. Clash Of The Titans finally, features an array of make-up talents for its cast of human, Gods, and creatures.

    Both An American Werewolf in London and The Howling had great makeup effects, but yes, I too would pick An American Werewolf in London 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
