    I love Tom Savini, but there is a reason why Rick Baker has 6 Academy Awards (Apes will surely be his 7th).

    Yeah, I think Rick Baker is the best. But I loved him before I knew that he had Oscar's on his mantle.

    Oh ok, I got ya. Then I'd go with Savini probably. I'm more familiar with his work. Plus he's got a school I want to go to. You know the one, it's on the back of the last 10 issues of Fangoria.

    Peloquin, as you asked for best make-up artist, I too have to go with Baker. But here I make a distinction between make-up and f/x. Although the transformation in AWIL is certainly one of the best f/x sequences on film, I would consider Savini the better f/x artist.

    My Bet goes to Rob Bottin and his work in the Thing which is totally awsome and also Carlo Ribaldi for His work in Possesion.
