Another year goes by, and we get another slate of easy throwaways for the squandered makeup category. At this point, I don't really know what they're qualifying as strong makeup, or if they even have any knowledge towards such. I can get this out of the way in one paragraph. Somebody explain to me where the skill is in the useless and purposeless plastering on "The Iron Lady" or "Albert Nobbs". The former will win, almost certainly, but with no real reason for such. "Harry Potter" is there just as a little bit of merit for their series finale. It could win, as having the strongest work there, but it's too hard to care in a category with this little real skill.
Will Win: "The Iron Lady"
Should Win: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2"
Should Really Win: "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy"
Personal Rankings: 1. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2"
2. "Albert Nobbs"
3. "The Iron Lady"
