The second to last round of guild awards were presented last night, as the Motion Picture Sound Editors gave out their two feature film awards to Gravity for Sound Effects and Captain Phillips for Sound in dialogue. Those two awards combine into one Oscar category for Sound Editing, where both films are nominated- so the always hard to call sound awards are anybody's guess at this point. Mine would be Gravity, but they may split the two Sound categories (the other is Sound Mixing) with Captain Phillips, so that it can win something too.
Meanwhile, the Hair & Makeup Guild gave out its prizes as well:
- Contemporary Hair Styling: The Butler
- Contemporary Makeup: Prisoners
- Period and/or Character Hair Styling: American Hustle
- Period and/or Character Makeup: Dallas Buyers Club
- Special Makeup Effects: Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
This is a slam dunk Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club, where it's only up against The Lone Ranger and Bad Grandpa. There's no way the Academy allows a Jackass movie to win one of their coveted statues. This coming weekend should bring the last of the industry guild awards, with the Costume Designers weighing in, along with the Cinema Audio Society.
