2012 SJ Movie Awards: Best Make-Up Artists
Some of the most busiest and overlooked people in the film industry are make up effect artists. They are the ones who make the impossible happen on screen, as we've seen from three of the best people in the business today at slinging goo and making your favorite actor look like a total believable mess. They also happened to be all working on the upcoming new Sam Raimi movie, "Oz: The Great and Powerful."

The total budget of $5,000 for make-up and visual effects for Kevin Smith's political-religious horror movie, we got to give a big hand to Redlefsen and the fellow make-up artist team. They created some very shocking effects for what would be a day's worth of catering on Sylvester Stallone movie. Look for Redlefsen further work on "True Blood," "Oz: The Great and Powerful," and the new Judd Aptow movie, "This is 40."
Robert Kurtzman, "The Woman"
The man that gave Quentin Tarantino an ear to slice off in "Reservoir Dogs", Robert Kurtzman is the man behind some of the coolest and goriest effects moments on screen. From his work on the original "Predator," "From Dusk till Dawn" (based upon his original story), and many more blood bursting movies. Kurtzman's work is on full display in the brutal last act of "The Woman", which doesn't waste a moment with his talents as body parts begin to fly on the screen. Look for Kurtzman work on the upcoming "Oz: The Great and Powerful" and the new Alex Cross movie coming out later this year.
