On Feb. 10, the British Academy of Film and Television announced the
winners for the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards. Lisa Westcott won
the award in the Make-Up and Hair category for her work on Les Misérables.
Westcott couldn't attend the ceremony but received the exciting news from her son who was following a live blog. "Of course I was very pleased, it was a really tough shoot but I had the best team to help share the load," she said via email.
Westcott, the make-up and hair designer on Les Misérables, previously won a British Academy Film Award for The Madness of King George (1996) and a British Academy TV Award for Wives and Daughters (2000), Our Mutual Friend (1999) and Masterpiece Theatre: Bleak House (1986). She was also nominated this year for the Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling Oscar, along with Julie Dartnell.

London-based make-up artist Angela Holthuis and photographer Izabela Habur set a challenge for themselves: Habur
asked Holthuis, a fashion pro, to create “a small story with bold looks
within a small time frame, to test out how far we [could] push
ourselves creatively,” Holthuis said.
