The final shortlist has been announced. Seven films are under consideration for Best Makeup & Hairstyling. The final three nominees will come from this list. As expected, Beauty and the Beast did not make the shortlist since it’s mostly visual effects. The slightly unexpected exclusions include The Shape of Water, Battle of the Sexes, The Greatest Showman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, and Wonder Woman.
