Japanese, partners win Academy Award for best cosmetics, hairstyling in film ‘Darkest Hour’

Japanese cosmetics craftsman Kazuhiro Tsuji and two partners on Sunday won the current year’s Academy Award for best cosmetics and hairstyling.

Tsuji, the principal Japanese to get the honor, imparted the prize to Britons David Malinowski and Lucy Sibbick.

The trio was perceived for their work changing performing artist Gary Oldman in the film “Darkest Hour” about British wartime pioneer Winston Churchill.

“Initially, we might want to give our ardent because of Gary Oldman. It was a genuine respect to be on this mind blowing venture with you. What’s more, we would not remain here today if not for you,” Tsuji said in his discourse amid the honor function.

Calling Oldman a “great on-screen character, a devoted craftsman and a genuine companion,” Tsuji stated, “This is a blessing from heaven for every one of us.”

Oldman asked for Tsuji to be a piece of the film subsequent to seeing his representation figures including that of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln.

Tsuji related the testing assignment of changing Oldman into Churchill, saying the two men had altogether different looks.

Tsuji, who hails from Kyoto, was assigned for the honor in 2007 and 2008.
