Hairywood: Awards contenders and their facial hair
And the Oscar for best performance by facial hair goes to ...
Ben Affleck's beard( Warner Bros. / November 28, 2012 )
The performance: Not since Barry Gibb gave the world a case of "Night Fever" in the late '70s has a beard been this groovalicious. Just look at it! No, not his hair. The beard! OK. You can look at the hair too. The movie gives you enough beautifully lighted close-ups of both, so you don't have to be choosy.
What the critics say: "Affleck's performance is 90% beard."
