Sadly, The Hobbit did not take home any trophies from the Academy Awards. I was particularly pulling for Tami Lane, the makeup artist who transformed RA into Thorin each day, not to mention all the other actors for whom she performed stellar makeup magic.
Ah well, two more films, more opportunities.
However, I think Tami is already a winner and in a big way. She’s earned the admiration of millions of fans around the world for her work. Not only that, she seems to have won the true friendship of one amazingly talented, kind, generous, warm-hearted and absolutely gorgeous actor turned bad-ass dwarf named Richard Armitage.
I’d say that was made of “winning,” wouldn’t you? (And she gets to do more bonding with him starting in May! Lucky girl.)
She’s already got one Oscar on her shelf.
While gold statuettes make good door stops or book ends, they DON’T give you big, cuddly hugs like this.
Why do you think she’s smiling so gleefully?!
