Montreal makeup artist gets Oscar nomination for 'Barney's Version'

Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti didn’t make the Oscar cut this morning for his starring turn in “Barney’s Version,” but the Montreal-shot film did get a nod for best makeup.

As Barney Panofsky, Giamatti needed to age several decades throughout the course of the film, which is based on the beloved novel by Mordecai Richler.

Montreal-based Adrien Morot received the nomination in the makeup category.

Morot is up against makeup specialists from two other films: “The Way Back” and “The Wolfman.”

According to his website, Morot’s company has worked on over 90 feature films.

“The King’s Speech” received a leading 12 nominations, including best picture. The Oscars will be handed out Feb. 27.
