‘Napoleon’ Lands on Oscars Shortlists for Makeup, Visual Effects and Sound

“Oppenheimer” and “Killers of the Flower Moon” also appeared on the Sound and Makeup shortlists


The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences have released the shortlists for 10 categories in the Oscars race for 2023, and only one film – Ridley Scott’s epic “Napoleon” – has landed on the shortlists for Makeup and Hairstyling, Visual Effects and Sound.

Films that landed on two out of three of the shortlists included “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Poor Things,” “Oppenheimer,” “Maestro,” “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One,” “Society of the Snow,” and “Ferrari.”

The Makeup and Hairstyling category includes biopic like “Maestro,” “Golda,” “Ferrari” and “Napoleon,” as per usual with the lineup. But the list also made room for pure genre enterprises such as the bloody Dracula saga “The Last Voyage of the Demeter” and Ari Aster’s ambitious, polarizing “Beau Is Afraid” (which, like “Napoleon,” starred Joaquin Phoenix).
