Have you ever watched an entire broadcast of an Academy Awards ceremony? It’s exhaustive! There’s so many categories. You want to see who won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, whatever – but there’s also Best Sound Mixing, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling. They’re the categories that no one really cares all that much about. But they are important jobs and a lot of people do them very well, so here are the winners in those minor categories.

‘Darkest Hour,’ ‘Phantom Thread’ among no-brainer winners

The team from the Winston Churchill pic “Darkest Hour” won the Academy Award for Best Makeup and Hairstyling, which they deserve for making Gary Oldman look exactly like Churchill circa World War II every day for the entire shoot.

“Phantom Thread” won Best Costume Design, which is no surprise, since the #Film is about fashion.

Both Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing went to Christopher Nolan’s WWII epic “Dunkirk,” the audio layer of which made heavy use of the Shepard tone illusion. The Academy Award for Best Production Design went to “The Shape of Water,” directed by Guillermo del Toro, whose every frame is drenched in rich detail and a very specific aesthetic. Best Documentary Feature went to the Russia-exposing “Icarus.” #movies #Oscars
