After the cruelest year and amid the weirdest awards season in memory, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and Birds of Prey applied two wins apiece to lead the film side of the eighth annual Make-Up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Awards.

With Birds of Prey not among the five nominees for Best Makeup & Hairstyling at the Academy Awards this month, Netflix’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom has emerged as the Oscar front-runner.

Pinocchio scored the night’s final prize for Best Special Make-Up Effects in a Feature at the virtual ceremony held Saturday.

On the TV side, the marquee winners included Bridgerton, The Crown, The Queen’s Gambit, The Mandalorian, Schitt’s Creek and Westworld.

The Kelly Clarkson Show and All That swept the respective make-up and hairstyling categories for Daytime Television and Children and Teen Programming. The night’s other double winners were Saturday Night Live and Hamilton.

Emmy-winning comedy legend and Dreamgirls Oscar nominee Eddie Murphy received the MUAHS guild’s Distinguished Artisan Award tonight, on his 60th birthday. He was introduced by his Coming 2 America co-star Arsenio Hall on Murphy’s 60 birthday, and the honor was presented by Murphy’s longtime stylist team of Vera Steimberg and Stacey “Cut” Morris.

The first Lifetime Achievement honor went to Matthew Mungle, a five-time Makeup Oscar nominee and winner for 1993’s Dracula.

Glenn Close introduced Mungle with a story about how he and his team transformed her into the title character for Albert Nobbs. She was stunned when she saw the final product, saying, “It wasn’t me anymore.” Close said that when her Hillbilly Elegy role came along, “the first person I called was Matthew.” After her makeup transformation into the film’s Mamaw, Close said she has the exact same feeling. “You are a great artist, you deserve this incredible award,” she said, adding that she’s “sure” they’ll work together again.

“Share your knowledge with others, be kind to others” Mungle said to “younger makeup artists” in accepting the awards. He also thanked Close and his longtime colleagues.

Also set for a Lifetime Achievement honor tonight is Terry Baliel, a three-time Emmy winner for Miss Rose White, Deadwood and Hairspray Live!

IATSE International President Matthew L. Loeb presented the guild’s inaugural Vanguard Award to two artists who have led the way for others to follow in their fields.

Bernadine Anderson is the first woman and woman of color to become a member of the guild and breaking the barrier landing a spot at Warner Bros. She was head of makeup for Coming to America and worked with Eddie Murphy for eight years. Richard Battle was on the ground level of theatrical productions being broadcast o PBS in the Wig and Makeup Department, decades ahead of captured performances and streaming. He was nominated for an Emmy for his work at San Francisco Ballet where he has worked for over 40 years.

Anthony Anderson hosted the show and opened with a line about learning “how to accessorize our PPE.” Cue the funny canned applause.

The “In Memoriam segment” featured a slow, soulful rendition of “Danny Boy” by Angie Wells.
