84th Academy Awards

NOMINEES

Usually, only three films are nominated in this category (rather than five).

Previously, make-up artists were only eligible for special achievement awards for their work, but the competitive category was formed in 1981 after complaints that the make-up work in The Elephant Man (1980) was not going to be honoured.

This category has different stages of nominating: a preliminary list of nominees is drawn up by the members of the branch; then a final list of nominees is worked out before the whole Academy votes on the winner.
