Eddie Murphy Receives Distinguished Artisan Honor at Make-up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Awards

Emmy-winning comedy legend and Dreamgirls Oscar nominee Eddie Murphy received the MUAHS Guild’s Distinguished Artisan Award on his 60th birthday tonight. He was introduced by his Coming 2 America co-star, Arsenio Hall, and the honor was presented by Murphy’s longtime stylist team of Vera Steimberg and Stacey “Cut” Morris.

The first lifetime achievement award went to Matthew Mungle, a five-time makeup Oscar nominee and winner of the 1993 Dracula.

Glenn Close introduced Mungle with a story how he and his team turned her into the title character for Albert Nobbs. She was stunned when she saw the final product and said, “It wasn’t me anymore.” Close said when her Hillbilly Elegy role came on, “the first person I called was Matthew.” After her makeup conversion into the movie’s mamaw, Close said she felt exactly the same. “You are a great artist, you deserve this incredible award,” she said, adding that she was “sure” that they will work together again.

“Share your knowledge with others, be kind to others,” Mungle said to “younger makeup artists” when they accepted the awards. He also thanked Close and his longtime colleagues.

The other Lifetime Achievement winner tonight was Terry Baliel, a three-time Emmy winner who has also worked on films like the Joy Luck Club, Star Trek, the Planet of the Apes, Alice in Wonderland and Jojo Rabbit. He was introduced by his Scarlett Johansson.

“He could have got a nomination for Jojo Rabbit if they had expanded the award to 10 nominees like other categories,” she said.
