As horrible as Universal Pictures’ The Wolfman remake was, the special effects work (when not CG) by make-up legend Rick Backer was off the hook — and he’s being rewarded with another Academy Award Nomination!!! Both Rick Baker and Dave Elsey have officially been nominated for “Best Makeup” in this year’s Academy Awards. Baker received the inaugural Academy Award for Makeup for his work on An American Werewolf in London. He also created the “werecat” creature Michael Jackson transforms into in the music video “Thriller”. Subsequently, Baker has been nominated nine more times with five additional Oscars, both records in his field. Baker claims that his work on Harry and the Hendersons is one of his proudest achievements, says Wikipedia.
