“Coming 2 America” tops Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards

Coming 2 America won three trophies, the most for a feature film, during the 9th annual Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild (IATSE Local 706) Awards, THR reports.

According to the report, the awards were presented Saturday during a live ceremony at the Beverly Hilton hotel. COVID-19 safety requirements include proof of vaccination and a negative COVID test, while MUAHS Awards masks were distributed to guests.

Amazon’s Coming 2 America received awards for best contemporary make-up, contemporary hair styling and special make-up effects. Also in the feature competition, Cruella won a trophy for period and/or character make-up, and Being the Ricardos picked up the award for period and/or character hair styling.

Coming 2 America and Cruella, along with Dune, The Eyes of Tammy Faye and House of Gucci are nominated for the Oscar in Make-Up and Hair Styling. A year ago, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom won a pair of MUAHS Awards en route to winning the Oscar in the category.

The MUAHS Awards also honoured achievements in television, commercials, music videos and live theater.

Jon Favreau accepted the Guild’s Distinguished Artisan Award, virtually, during which he thanked the artists and craftspeople in the Guild for being “an important part of my work, both in front and behind the camera.” He noted that he has “benefited first as an audience member,” and for the collaboration in “creating a unified vision.”
