Now this is an award we can get behind. For his valiant efforts with eyeliner as Captain Jack Sparrow, as well as the several layers of greasepaint required for Alice in Wonderland and The Lone Ranger and his numerous other character roles, Johnny Depp is to receive the inaugural Distinguished Artisan award from the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild.

Johnny will receive the award from Oscar-winning makeup artist Joel Harlow, who has worked on Johnny for his Tonto and Jack Sparrow looks. Congratulations Mr Depp, we hope you receive the award in a fittingly dramatic look – we’ll be looking out for #fotd photos.
