Best: 'Grand Budapest Hotel' Getting a Lot of Love

With such stiff competition – and no shortage of snubs and near shut-outs – it was refreshing that Wes Anderson's ornamental period piece The Grand Budapest Hotel got the acknowledgement it deserved for the rich details that fill every shot. The movie took home Best Costuming, Best Original Score, Best Production Design and Best Makeup and Hairstyling — the latter in no small part thanks to the crazy prosthetics used to turn the beautiful Tilda Swinton into posh elderly hotel patron, Madame D. Mark Coulier, who previously won for turning Meryl Streep into a later-in-life Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, helped Swinton age 40 years for the role. Though the movie didn’t take home any top honors, it more than earned the awards for the aspects that made it one of the most delicious looking movies of the year.
