How does one separate the actors from the actors? Simple. A true thespian is not one who will shy away from devoting everything – including their appearance – to a role that speaks to them. It goes without saying that, in recent years, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has paid extra attention to the acting performances of men and women who underwent extensive physical alteration for a role. It still amazes me that Tyler Perry’s riveting performance in Diary of a Mad Black Woman went without a nomination… Alas, with the Oscars right around the corner, please allow this collection of TYF’s favorite Oscar-worthy transformations to tide you over until the beautiful people hit the red carpet on February 24th.
Did I miss anyone? Who would you have included? I relish in your criticisms! Let me know below.
