Remember that moment last year when DC Comics fans everywhere argued against the critical lashing Suicide Squad received on Rotten Tomatoes? You can hear them all laughing now, because the film has won its first Oscar. Yep, in a hilarious turn of events, the comic supervillian flick took out an Academy Award for Best Makeup and Hairstyling, beating Star Trek Beyond and A Man Called Ove in its category. Go, DC Comics.
Meanwhile, here's what the NYT's Vulture had to say about it:
SUICIDE SQUAD now has won more Oscars than David Lynch— Vulture (@vulture) February 27, 2017
I mean, technically it's not winning any accolades for the acting or for plausible plotlines, but hey, an Oscar is an Oscar, right? We bet Margot Robbie's feeling smug about her Harley Quin spinoff right about now...
