Oscars: 'Wolfman' and 'Alice' a little bit of that movie magic

February 27, 2011 |  7:15 pm

Dtoro Have to say, I'm always a fan of the makeup and costume categories. These always feel like the old-school movie magic awards, before we had 3-D and special effects. And movies that often would never get a second look get, well, a second look.

How can you not want to give the "Wolfman" guys who gave Benicio del Toro really great facial hair, broken knuckles and those amazing nails a golden boy? I'd check into their spa anytime.

And costumes, this is where the out-of-the-world has a shot. The incredible Colleen Atwood picks up her third trophy, for "Alice in Wonderland." Clearly better with the clothes than in front of the camera. Glad she won and really felt for her in front of the microphone. She could have used an assist from Colin Firth.
