Japanese makeup artist wins Academy Award

06 March 2018

Veteran actor Gary Oldman took home the prestigious Oscar for Best Actor for his brilliant performance as Sir Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

Gary is hoping the tokens - which he's referred to as "good luck charms" - will bring him the win in the Leading Actor category.

On the other hand, Gary Oldman was given the Best Actor recognition for "Darkest Hour", while Allison Janney was handed the Best Actress in a Supporting Role for "I, Tonya" and Sam Rockwell bagged the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

If his interview is anything to go by, we might see Gary Oldman repeat his Churchill act in a sequel.

Tonight he will also rub shoulders with his first wife Lesley Manville, who has been nominated as Best Supporting Actress for her role alongside Daniel Day-Lewis in Phantom Thread.

Oscars 2018: Nominees hit the red carpet on Hollywood's biggest night
But of the ones I saw, I'd give the nod to Richard Jenkins for " The Shape of Water " and Laurie Metcalf for "Ladybird". Would anyone not cheer seeing Harrelson at the podium? He has won twice, for "Glory" and "Training Day".

If Oldman wins the Oscar for Best Actor this year in spite of his troubled past, in won't necessarily be a referendum on the Oscars themselves.

Kazuhiro Tsuji has established himself as a miracle worker in Hollywood. "He said, 'We should have been friends". I'm not speaking out to hurt Gary. I have to sculpt it just right.

Me Too dominated the awards season rhetoric.

"You don't really think about it". The fourth split was between "Moonlight" for best picture and Damien Chazelle of "La La Land" for best director past year. "The truth needs to be told".

"I thought my dad was going to have a heart attack, actually". "He's got years", Oldman said. I truly believe that with nearly any other actor playing Churchill, the film would have just been another period piece. He has worked on many movies, including one by the famed Japanese director Akira Kurosawa. "I saw it as a once in a lifetime opportunity".

Chicago Teens Meet With Parkland Survivors To Discuss Gun Violence
Since the 14 February attack on the Florida school the NRA has become a target of a heated campaign for tougher gun laws. Until Parkland, many members of Congress were reluctant to fall out with the NRA and its five million members.

The story exposes the often-caustic as well sarcastic personality of Churchill as he navigates unfriendly political waters, orchestrates a near insane plan to rescue British troops at Dunkirk, and enjoys quieter moments with friends and family. "I combined all this information into his make-up".

Applying the transformative make-up took close to four hours every morning and involved make-up artists David Malinowski and Lucy Sibbick arriving at the studio in the early hours.

"The hard part for this kind of make-up, [is that] the make-up has to be flawless".

"These days, the quality of the camera is so great that it captures everything - any kind of flaw or detail". He said, "I owe this and so much more to so many".

He added that he tests his make-up on actors prior to application, to ensure that they are not allergic to it.

Yet right now frustration burns brightly, and Wenger is at the heart of it. This will be an arduous task for the Gunners who face A.C. We don't go into games with our heads down".
