I've already mentioned the groundbreaking computer aided graphics for James Cameron's Avater as a modern form of art (CLICK). Now consider a group of artists who usually get neglected by the media when the Oscars are handed out: make-up artists. Their work may not "sell" movies the way star names and directors do, but it is vital if the actors are to look as they should for their roles. I think it's a safe bet that the principal make-up artist for Avatar will be in the running for an Oscar next year. Recognize this actress with the huge golden eyes? Sigourney Weaver. What a transformation!
