'Boys,' 'Rings,' 'Alias' top guild awards

See winnersHOLLYWOOD — It ain’t quite Oscar material, but Disney’s cross-dressing college comedy “Sorority Boys” cornered the market on good hair in 2002, according to the Hollywood Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist Guild, which tipped the blow dryer to the pic during its fourth annual awards Sunday at the BevHilton.

Winning “Sorority” hair gurus Donna Gilbert and Joanne Harris nabbed contemporary hairstyling for a feature film honors at the gala, which is touted more for the contents of the gift bag, than the envelope.

Eighteen awards were bestowed — seven for a job well done in motion pictures, nine for TV, and two lifetime achievement (Oscar-winning hairstylist Paul LeBlanc, and the late veteran makeup artist Jack Pierce).

New Line and “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” topped the film tally with three wins; Miramax grabbed two, and IFC and the Mouse House (“Sorority Boys”) were each handed one. On the TV end, ABC, CBS and NBC tied with two nods apiece, while Fox, HBO and UPN tied with one each.

Looking especially good in the TV arena was ABC’s spy drama “Alias,” which nabbed nods for contemporary makeup (Angela Nogaro and Diane Brown), and character hairstyling (Michael Reitz, Karen Bartek, and Norma Lee). Show’s main attraction Jennifer Garner was also feted in the new character hair category, which honors the thesp, rather than makeup artist.

And while Garner was not on hand to accept her statuette, a bevy of her “Alias” mates were present and accounted for, including Victor Garber, Michael Vartan, Merrin Dungey, Ron Rifkin and Bradley Cooper. The gang, who represented the largest talent body of support of any project, presented the contemporary hairstyling award — which the show was nommed for but lost out to “Sex and the City.”

Presenter Michelle Rodriguez (“S.W.A.T.”) joked about opening the wrong envelope and accidentally announcing the winner(s) in the other category first; a mistake she did end up making.

Rodriguez’s “S.W.A.T.” co-star Colin Farrell arrived at show’s end to announce the final two awards of the night. Other presenters included Gail O’Grady (“American Dreams”), Jeri Ryan (“Boston Public”), Catherine Dent (“The Shield”) and Amy Madigan.

Kudocast will be telecast Saturday on The Style Network.
