Star Trek XI is an Oscar winner!

Congrats to Barney Burman, Mindy Hall and Joel Harlow, Oscar winners for Best Makeup for Star Trek (2009)! Not that it's difficult to make an Orion girl look good, but hey, that green makeup was artfully applied.


  1. I think my favorite star trek moment from the Oscars was Ben Stiller's vulcan ear comment.

  2. The competition was pretty low-key, but if you watch the making-of videos the job that the make-up staff did was incredible. I mean, not just multiple consultations with Nimoy over what makes a good Vulcan ear and tons of prototypes, but the design and engineering that went into the extras/aliens was jaw dropping. They totally earned it.
