‘Suicide Squad’ Just Won An Oscar, Yes You Read That Right
Welcome to the Upside Down! Suicide Squad is no longer “critically panned DC movie Suicide Squad,” but “Oscar winner Suicide Squad.”
The Warner Bros. supervillian movie was awarded the Oscar for Best Makeup and Hairstyling. The film, which has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 26 percent, beat Star Trek Beyond and Swedish film A Man Called Ove for the honor. The David Ayer film also became the first superhero movie to win in the Makeup and Hairstyling category.
Alessandro Bertolazzi, Giorgio Gregorini, and Christopher Nelson went on stage to accept the award. Bertolazzi, who is Italian, dedicated the award to all immigrants.
Baffled by the surprising win? Yep. But now we can say one of the movies featured in our Critics Are Raving video series is an Oscar winner.
