- Foxcatcher — Bill Corso, Dennis Liddiard
- The Grand Budapest Hotel — Frances Hannon, Mark Coulier
- Guardians of the Galaxy — Elizabeth Yianni-Georgiou, David White
Will Win: Guardians of the Galaxy
Could Win: The Grand Budapest Hotel
Should Win: Guardians of the Galaxy
Foxcatcher is in this category because of the prosthetic work on Steve Carrell. I don’t think that this is enough to constitute a win in this category (although it is incredibly good prosthetic work). Guardians of the Galaxy comes across as the clear favorite. The makeup work in that sci-fi hit was fantastic.
