The 91st Academy Awards were announced on Sunday when Greg Cannom, Kate Biscoe and Patricia Dehaney won the Oscar for Make-up and Hairstyling for the movie Vice.
And just so you didn’t know, Greg Cannom is the man behind Rishi Kapoor’s incredible makeup of a 90 years old in the movie ‘Kapoor & Sons’.
But for the four-time Academy Award winner Greg Cannom, amazing transformations are not something new to the movie industry.
In Kapoor & Sons, Rishi Kapoor played the role almost twenty years his senior and it was Greg who took the best out of him and nailed the physical aspect of the role. Rishi Kapoor even warmly congratulated Greg for the win.
Greg Cannom is a special make-up artist, who has been nominated 9 times for the Academy Awards, winning it four times, including the recent win for Vice. In the past, he has bagged the award for remarkable movies like Mrs. Doubtfire, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
About his recent win, directed by Adam McKay, Vice is a biopic on Dick Cheney - former Vice President of the United States - and has been much talked-about over Christian Bale's incredible onscreen transformation into the character. Vice was one of the second-most nominated films at the Oscars this year, the other being A Star Is Born, with eight nominations each. Recently at the Golden Globes earlier this year, Vice had six nominations but scored only one win for Christian Bale in the Best Actor (Musical/Comedy) category. Sam Rockwell plays former US President George W Bush in Vice.
And now, sharing a photo of his final look as Fawad Khan and Sidharth Malhotra's adorable onscreen dadu from Kapoor And Sons, Rishi Kapoor added: "This was the transformation which took 5 hours daily. Kapoor And Sons. Cheers, Greg Cannom, from all of us. You are a genius!"
