Oscars 2020 was full of surprises and it didn't go so well with fans, who waited with bated breath to witness their favorite movies and actors take home the prestigious awards. 

One such move of the Academy has irked ‘Maleficent’ fans, who seem extremely disappointed about Angelina Jolie’s movie losing to Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman’s latest as the Best Makeup and Hairstyling was awarded to Kazy Hiro for ‘Bombshell’.

While some feel ‘Maleficent’ deserved to win against ‘Bombshell’, some were seen criticizing the Academy for overlooking films such as ‘Joker’ and ‘1917’. One Tweet read, “Sure, but going up against Maleficent, Joker and 1917? Bombshell doesnt even hold a candle to what those stylists and makeup artists did for those actors.”

“A: I think it came from a press release. It was perfect to show the makeup talent right after the win. I was surprised that Bombshell won since it was competing against shows with a lot more dramatic makeup such as Maleficent and Joker. Good for them!,” stated another. 

A few of the disappointed fans noted that even '1917' did a better job with the costume in comparison to ‘Bombshell’.  “lol yeah. This is literally the one time I'm like ....even joker was better than this. 1917 had a full set of period clothing. MALEFICENT!?!?!? Wow,”

“I guess it’s unpopular but the makeup in Maleficent > the makeup in Bombshell. The latter is waaaaaay too uncanny valley for me,” expressed one of them. 

Basing their argument on the fact that ‘Bombshell’ did not have anything out of the box to offer, a furious Twitter user wrote, “I meant, Charlize Theron looked more like Megyn Kelly than Megyn Kelly ever could, but still there is nothing extraordinary or dramatic about the styling...? Maleficent has more characteristics, and Joker has depth at least???”

The other nominations under Best Makeup and Hairstyling included Nicki Ledermann and Kay Georgiou for ‘Joker’, Jeremy Woodhead for ‘Judy’, and Naomi Donne, Tristan Versluis, and Rebecca Cole for ‘1917’.
