Makeup artist Duncan James Jarman is nominated in the “Makeup and Hairstyling” category thanks to his work for The Revenant. Jarman was part of the makeup team who did Leonardo DiCaprio’s makeup for his role in the movie in which he gets attacked by a bear and gets seriously injured.
The makeup team would spend around five hours to apply the makeup and make DiCaprio’s wound as realistic as possible. Jarman and his team did a lot of historical research and they used synthetic wounds and a large quantity of makeup blood to get the look.
A photo of DiCaprio in the makeup room with Jarman surfaced online and went viral.
