MUAHS2019On February 15, 2019, President of the Make-up & Hair Stylist Guild, IATSE Local 706, Julie Socash made a statement regarding the new changes that were announced for the 2019 Academy Awards Telecast.

“We know from some of our members, as talented artists and professionals, that they are disappointed by the Academy’s decision to handle various awards in this fashion, even if on a rotational basis. As IATSE International President Matthew D. Loeb made clear in his statement, our members are “the core of any motion picture production.” While we are looking forward to the Oscar telecast, our focus right now is on this Saturday night’s Make-up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards where our members artistic contributions will be honored with the dignity our craft deserves.”
