AMERICAN HUSTLE DESERVES AN OSCAR FOR HAIRSTYLING

American+Hustle+Moviecut

One of the things we liked best about American Hustle was the HAIR. In particular, the men’s 1970’s hair. Christian Bale’s character’s comb-over was an instant classic and gave the movie its hilarious opening scene. Jeremy Renner’s pompadour was perfect for his smarmy mayor character. And who can forget Bradley Cooper’s headful of perm curlers? The women’s hair was also great, but in this case men’s hair dominated the movie and made it funnier. Kathrine Gordon was the head hair stylist responsible for the magnificent coiffures and of course, she SHOULD get an Oscar for it but probably won’t. Why? Because the sometimes backward Academy gives ONE award for ”Best Makeup and Hairstyling.” Imagine combining the two very separate skills! Consequently the award usually goes to someone who does prosthetic makeup for a fantasy movie. It’s a shame that hair people aren’t appreciated like they should be.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
