As Hollywood’s best and most talented gather to celebrate accomplishments in cinema, La La Land is expected to go home the big winner. That is what most critics are predicting, but one thing many did not predict was that Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad would walk out tonight with a golden statue. David Ayer’s Suicide Squad beat out Star Trek Beyond and A Man Called Ove for Best Makeup and Hairstyling.
Suicide Squad is notorious for it’s poor reception by critics. Critics who would have never believed that they now have to refer to it as the Oscar Winning Suicide Squad. It is even more surprising that it won for Makeup and Hairstyling after Jared Leto got overwhelming criticism for how his Joker was made up. However, critic response should not take away from the hard work of the deserving folks behind the scenes. This film did involve a cast of unique characters and appearances, including but not limited to Killer Croc, Harley Quinn and The Enchantress.
Now on Monday morning comic fans everywhere will pray that Warner Bros. doesn’t confuse this victory as as a positive job performance by Producer Zack Snyder.
