los angeles - Again no Dutch glory in Hollywood. The Dutch make-up artist Arjen Tuiten has seized an Oscar
. The make-up artist was nominated in the make-up category and her for his work for the movie Wonder. The 37-year-old Frisian had to leave the Oscar to the Japanese Kazuhiro Tsuji for his work in Darkest Hour.
It was the first time that a Dutchman had been nominated in the category best make-up. Wonder, starring Julia Roberts, talks about a deformed boy going to school. It is the first time in film history that a young actor with grime plays a leading role in a film. Tuiten feared in advance that he would fall outside the prizes.
There is one Dutchman in the race for an Oscar. Cameraman Hoyte van Hoytema can hope for an Oscar in the category cinematography, for his camera work in the film Dunkirk. It is also the first time that a Dutch person has been nominated in that category.
Dutch-inspired Loving Vincent also has the chance to win an Oscar, for best animated film. The Van Gogh Museum has supported the makers of the film for years and museum director Alex Rüger is present in the hall during the presentation.
