He's wore a lot of makeup over the years...
The Guardian reports that Johnny Depp is set to win an award for all the makeup he's worn in movies over the years, for characters including Edward Scissorhands, The Mad Hatter (Alice in Wonderland), Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Tonto (The Lone Ranger). He will be given the Distinguished Artisan award by the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild.
This is a new category from the Guild, which celebrates an actor who has made artistic collaborations with hair and makeup specialists. The award will be presented by make-up artist Joel Harlow, who worked with Depp on The Lone Ranger and Pirates of the Caribbean, as well as this year's Transcendence.
Guild president Susan Cabral-Ebert said: "Makeup and hair artisans agree that Johnny Depp is a wonderful selection to receive our first Distinguished Artisan Award. He, probably more than any other actor working today, uses the skills of our members to delineate his characters. Depp has constantly been an outstanding supporter of our crafts, ultimately respectful and appreciative of our members' abilities and generous with his creative collaboration. A great artist himself, he allows others to shine."
The ceremony happens on February 15 at Paramount Studios. Nominees include One Chance (Best Contemporary Hair Styling and Best Contemporary Make-Up), The Lone Ranger (which has two nominations), American Hustle (Best Period and/or Character Hair Styling) and Jobs.
