The Hairstyling and Makeup category at The Oscars may have a pop culture footprint this year.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced their shortlist for the Makeup and Hairstyling category, which includes some very familiar fandom titles, including major properties from Disney, Marvel, and a Marvel offshoot by Sony.
The full shortlist is as follows:
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING
While we’re impressed with the inclusion of the films highlighted in bold lettering, we’re surprised not to see some other titles like THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES and INTO THE WOODS. GUARDIANS and MALEFICENT definitely had Oscars worthy styling, but THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 comes as a surprise.
This is only a shortlist, so only 5 of the above films will officially be nominated. The nominees will be announced on Thursday, January 15th.
The Oscars will air on February 22nd, 2015.
