jared.leto_.dallas.buyers.club_After a ten-year hiatus, the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Awards are back and were awarded tonight in a black-tie ceremony with 500 in attendance at the Paramount Studios Theater. Fourteen categories were honored in film, television, commercials and live theater. Bad GrandpaTwo of the films honored tonight — Jackass: Bad Grandpa and Dallas Buyers Club are also in contention for Best Achievement in Make-up and Hairstyling Oscars this year. Katherine Gordon won for hairstyling for American Hustle and although she is in London for the BAFTA Awards, she did send a friend to pick up the awards with a statement thanking Christian Bale “for having the courage of ten men and ten women for allowing that comb over.” Robin Mathews, who was honored for best make-up for Dallas Buyers Club noted that the entire movie was shot in 23 days and she only had a budget of only $250 which left many in the audience to gasp. Mathews actually used cornmeal and grits to give the illusion of dermatitis and had to make her actors look healthier and sick in the span of one day as the actors maintained their weight. Stephen Prouty and Tony Gardner (of Alterian) were on hand to receive the award for Jackass: Bad Grandpa and spoke about the three hours it took every day to make Johnny Knoxville into an old man. They used 11 pieces to achieve realistic look that had to pass as real “up close and in broad daylight to pull off the pranks” as Knoxville himself noted. Without the realistic-looking make-up, Knoxville said, “the movie wouldn’t have been possible. Period.” Best Contemporary hairstyling went to The Butler with Robert Stevenson accepting on he and his partner Candace Neal who is in London awaiting word on the BAFTAs while Pamela Westmore accepted for Prisoners which won Best Contemporary Make-Up on behalf of her partner Donald Mowat who she said tried desperately to get back to L.A. from Canada where he is working on set. After the production messed up the flight schedule, he got a new flight, ended up sleeping in the airport and, after all that, his flight was cancelled due to bad weather.Make-Up Artist Dick Smith, who transformed Linda Blair in The Exorcist, aged Dustin Hoffman in Little Big Man, turned Marlon Brando in into The Godfather, created Robert DeNiro’s mohawk (his long hair was kept underneath a cap) in Taxi Driver, and won an Oscar for Amadeus, won the lifetime achievement award. The 91 year-old legend was not present as he is in ill health, but he was honored by make-up artist Rick Baker who became emotional and he noted what a great mentor Smith has been to him.” Dick SmithHe has a love for the craft. A passion. He really wanted to elevate the state of the art. There were no trade secrets with Dick,” said Baker of the man who spent 60 years in the craft. He said he wanted others to learn what he had learned. “He set the standard that we all strive to achieve.” Receiving a lifetime achievement award for hairstyling was Gail Ryan who was presented with the award from her friend Benecio del Toro. Ryan has worked on such film as The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Blue Chips, and 21 Grams. Ryan said that when she was in high school she initially wanted to become a bookkeeper but was talked out of it by her friend. “I don’t know why the hand of fate worked the way it did but I am very lucky it did and I am grateful to my peers.” gail-ryan-lifetime-acheivement-award.jpg w=1000&h=562&crop=1Johnny Depp accepted the Distinguished Artisan Award calling it “a great honor” and then after a series of clips showing him in Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland, The Pirates of the Caribbean series and The Lone Ranger, added, “but glancing at the screen, I’ve realized what a ridiculous thing I’ve done … why do they still give me jobs?” He noted, “there is no way I’d been able to find anywhere close to the character without these people that paint me into that skin.” For those in the audience wondering … an on-stage marriage proposal tonight between two young men took place … no, they weren’t make-up artists or hairstylists … but one was a friend of one of the people who put the show together. Emcee Tom Arnold interrupted the show for what he called “a special moment” as Chris Heller, 37, took his boyfriend of four years, Ryan Sirois, 30, by the hand and pulled him to the stage, got down on one knee and proposed marriage. The two marketers (helium creative) had come up from Florida (where gay marriage is banned) for the event. A surprised Ryan said yes as the audience erupted into applause and hoots.
