"Loved First Man myself and the score. "The Landing" reminds me of Michael Nyman's score for The Piano in parts.  Nice balanced talk on A Star Is Born..." - Joseph

"I liked A Star is Born well enough but when the bar is set that high by the Internet, nitpicking is going to happen. It’s the festival bubble’s fault and it happens every year." - Ryan

Year in Review: 17 Wigs From 2017

Each day a new "year in review" angle. Here's Chris Feil...

Perhaps it's the return of RuPaul's Drag Race next month or the fact that we finally have Greta Gerwig in the Oscar race, but we've got wigs on the brain. While Oscar has nailed down the potentially nominated wiggery for the Makeup and Hairstyling category, it's worth reflecting that this year gave us far more glorious wig moments than can be captured in a single Oscar category.

From Michelle Williams's subtle 70s waves in All the Money in the World, the white trash extravaganza of I, Tonya, to The Greatest Showman's candy confections, the movies had us shouting "WIG!" all year long.

Here are 17 memorable moments in wigs in 2017...

Cate Blanchett's hair is so cool when it's down as she embodies this great combination of total sexiness and badassery.

I am still in awe of Sasha Velour's wig reveal. I get so emotional, baby.

Sasha Velour is the real lipsynch assassin of the Season, maybe of all seasons! Love Shea Coullee and wish he, trinity or Valentina will compete for All Stars 3 and will have a great Chance to be the Winner, but Sasha deserve that Crowning. Not only for that two killer Lipsynch alone, because she was sooo underrated that season and should still win the make over challenge, the gayest ball and maybe snatch game. Always on Top, never be in the buttom! ^^

That Rihanna gif is the only reason I want to see Valerian. Bless this website, and bless you, Chris Feil, for every single one of those captions, especially "Pennywig".

there are some creams that to be used for removing a tattoo with low cost. They are developed in order to remove a tattoo by fading it. they are little side effects
