Oscar-winning makeup artist Rick Baker filled out this card to say that he would attend an unspecified Academy Awards presentation.
Document signed "RB" in blue ink. Red and lead pencil marks and notations in unknown hand. 6x4½ card with perforated top edge. Baker filled out this card to say that he would attend both the Academy Awards presentation and the Board of Governors Ball. It's hard to say when he filled this out, though. As of this biography, he's been nominated for a total of 11 Academy Awards, winning 6, since 1982. Oscar-winning special effects and make-up artist Baker, born Richard A. Baker in 1950, seems to have a thing for gorillas. He's designed gorilla suits, makeup and spceial effects - and occasionally gotten into them and gone ape - for movies as diverse as Schlock (1971), King Kong (1976), The Kentucky Fried Movie (1977), Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984), Gorillas in the Mist (1988) and Planet of the Apes (2001). He's also made aliens (Star Wars, 1977; Starman, 1982; Men in Black, 1997; Men in Black II), Bigfoots (Harry and the Hendersons, 1987), werewolves (An American Werewolf in London, 1981; the music video for Michael Jackson's Thriller, 1983; Wolf, 1994), devils (Hellboy, 2004), superheroes with father issues (Batman Forever, 1995), the unclassifiable (Gremlins 2: The New Batch, 1990) and general blood, splatter and yecch (It's Alive!, 1974). Fans of Eddie Murphy can thank Baker for some of his more eye-popping transformations in Coming to America (1988), The Nutty Professor (1996), The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps (2000) and Norbit (2007), and Dr. Seuss can thank him for turning Jim Carrey into a Grinch in Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000). Baker has won or shared six Academy Awards for makeup and special effects for his work in An American Werewolf in London, Harry and the Hendersons, Ed Wood (1994), The Nutty Professor, Men in Black and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. He also shared an Emmy with Stan Winston in 1974 for The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, in which 40-something Cicely Tyson was transformed into a 110 year-old woman. Lightly creased. Staple holes in top left corner. Rounded corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
