The makeup artists who made the sleek, glamorous Helen Mirren look like frumpy Golda Meir in the movie Golda made the shortlist for the Oscar for Best Makeup and Hairstyling. The shortlists for several Oscar categories were announced in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Mirren’s performance as the former prime minister coping with the Yom Kippur War won raves, and many credited the makeup artists for giving her an authentic look. Guy Nattiv, the director, said, “The brilliant Karen Hartley and her team deserve everything in my book. They did a fantastic transformation of Helen into Golda. The Golda team is so proud of them.”
