Emmy award winning primetime and film actress Melissa McCarthy (Life of the Party , Mike & Molly, Nobodies, Saturday Night Live) will be the first female artist to receive the Distinguished Artisan Award to honor her prolific career. “It is with respect and joy that we are able to honor Melissa McCarthy, a true friend to our crafts of make-up artistry and hair styling. Melissa collaborates with our creative artisans in every character she develops – whether it’s the SNL parody of Sean Spicer or the true-to-life author Lee Israel. We want to let Melissa know how greatly she is appreciated, she is so deserving of this award. This is also a historic moment as Melissa is the first woman to ever receive this honor from our guild,” stated Sue Cabral-Ebert, President of IATSE Local 706.
