UPDATE: We didn't win, but our friends did! We celebrated into the night. Grateful for recognition of hard work.
We are so excited to cheer on The Gorilla's movie nominated for an Academy Award for Best Makeup! Knoxville went through 3+ hours of makeup a day while shooting this movie for nearly a year. His Grandpa makeup fooled real people even close up under regular circumstances, no other movie magic or lighting.
Here's a video of the transformation process:
That's Oscar-worthy, right?!
The Gorilla and I will be cheering from home for a win, and I'll be tweeting the red carpet and the ceremony.
PS - Our fingers are also crossed for our dear friend Spike (The Gorilla's childhood friend and co-producer of the franchise movies) and his movie Her, up for FIVE Academy Awards including Best Picture.
