“Mad Max: Fury Road” led all feature films with two awards at the Make-Up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Awards, which took place on Saturday night in Los Angeles.

The fourth entry in George Miller‘s “Mad Max” franchise, which is nominated for an Oscar for Best Makeup and Hairstyling (the Academy punctuates those titles differently than the guild), won for its period and/or character make-up, and for special make-up effects.

Other features that won awards were “Furious 7” and “Pitch Perfect 2,” which won for contemporary make-up and hair styling, respectively, and “Cinderella,” which won for period and/or character hair styling.

The other Oscar nominees for makeup and hair, “The Revenant” and “The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared,” were not nominated by MUAHS.

The show’s big winner, though, was “American Horror Story: Hotel,” which won three awards in the television miniseries categories, and another two in the commercials and music videos categories.

“Game of Thrones” and “Dancing With the Stars” each won two TV awards, while “The Walking Dead” won one.

Other double winners included “Alice in Wonderland” in the theatrical categories, and “Henry Danger” in children’s television.

Make-up Artist Ve Neill and hair stylist Yolanda Toussieng received Lifetime Achievement Awards, which were presented to them by Johnny Depp, with whom they worked on “Ed Wood” and “Edward Scissorhands,” among other films.

The ceremony was hosted by Loni Love and took place at the Paramount Studios Theatre on the Paramount lot. Presenters included LeVar Burton, Kate Flannery, Dash Mihok and Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs.
