The 2024 Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards have officially unveiled their nominees.

The ceremony, taking place February 18, marks the annual awards show for the IATSE Local 706 union, honoring achievements in make-up and hair styling artistry across motion pictures, television, commercials, music videos, and live theater in 23 nomination categories. Julie Socash, IATSE Local 706 president, announced the 2024 nominees, which include “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” “Saltburn,” “Barbie,” “Maestro,” “Poor Things,” and “Nyad.”

Notably shut out was “Priscilla,” Sofia Coppola’s film that IndieWire’s Bill Desowitz predicted would be a frontrunner for the 2024 Oscars.

On the TV side, “The Idol,” “Ahsoka,” “The Last of Us,”  “The Crown,” and “Star Trek: Picard” are among the nominees. A tie in the Best Special Make-Up Effects TV category makes for six nominees as opposed to the typical five.

As previously announced, Oscar and Emmy-winning make-up artist Michael Westmore (“Rocky,” “Star Trek,” “Raging Bull”) will receive the esteemed Vanguard Award during the ceremony. Additionally, Oscar- and Emmy-winning make-up artist Kevin Haney, whose career spans from “Driving Miss Daisy” to “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award alongside Emmy-nominated hair stylist Ora T. Green (“Blade,” “Star Trek: Nemesis”).
