2022 MUAHS Awards Surprise Makeup, Hairstyling Winners: ‘Cruella’ and ‘Being the Ricardos’

February 20, 2022


“Cruella” (Disney) and “Being the Ricardos” (Amazon) were the surprise period winners for makeup and hairstyling, respectively, at the 9th annual MUAHS Guild Awards Saturday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. They beat out such strong Oscar contenders as “Dune” (Warner Bros.), “House of Gucci” (MGM/UA), and “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” (Searchlight/Disney).

Additionally, “Coming 2 America” (Amazon), another Oscar contender, took contemporary makeup, hairstyling, and best makeup effects honors. The latter was an impressive upset over “Dune” and “House of Gucci.” The team of Mike Marino, Stacey Morris, and Carla Farmer perfectly complemented the Afro-punk vibe in “Coming 2 America” introduced by Oscar winning-costume designer Ruth Carter along with some new aging effects wrinkles.

While “Cruella” definitely has Oscar momentum for makeup and hair designer Nadia Stacey’s delightfully ’70s punk look for Emma Stone, the fact that the origin story split honors with “Being the Ricardos” — which isn’t even in the Oscar race — proves that it’s still an open race among the period pieces.

“House of Gucci’s” unrecognizable Jared Leto as the balding, paunchy Paolo is very impressive, as is Best Actress nominee Jessica Chastain’s transformation as the legendary evangelist. However, “Dune” has the creative advantage in not being limited by real-life people or a Disney icon in training. Thus, director Denis Villeneuve was free to reinvent the look of Stellen Skarsgård’s Baron by riffing on Marlon Brando’s fierce, gorilla-like Kurtz from “Apocalypse Now” with go-to designer Donald Mowat and the Swedish team of prosthetics artists Love Larson and Eva von Bahr.

Meanwhile, in a preview of the Emmy race, “American Horror Story,” “Emily in Paris,” “Genius: Aretha,” “Pose,” and “Star Trek: Discovery” were the big TV winners.

As previously announced, director Jon Favreau (“The Mandalorian”) took the Distinguished Artisan Award honors, Michèle Burke (“Mission: Impossible” series) was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award, and award-winning actor Doug Jones (“Star Trek: Discovery,” “Hellboy”), earned the inaugural Chair Award.
