Breaking headlines everywhere this weekend were the 2012 Emmy nominations. Atop the list was FX‘s submission to the miniseries or movie category of the hit TV show American Horror Story. Lori Melton of the Examiner congratulated the entire AHS cast and crew, spotlighting prosthetic designer Christien Tinsley and his team’s work.
This is Tinsley’s third Emmy nomination for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup for a Series, Miniseries, Movie, or Special. Along with brother, Makeup Effects Artist Michael Mekash, and sister-in-law, Department Head Makeup Artist Eryn Krueger Mekash, as well as fellow Prosthetics Designer Jason Hamer and Makeup Effects Artists Hiroshi Yada, Christopher Nelson and Kim Ayers, Tinsley transformed the Emmy nominated actors and actresses, such as Denis O’Hare who plays Burn Man, into their true characters.
A strong believer in Tinsley’s talent, Melton comments “There’s no question that the very talented Tinsley and company deserve their Emmy recognition this year for bringing some of the most original, vivid and frightening characters to life on such a groundbreaking television series like American Horror Story.” To read more about Tinsley’s Emmy nomination click HERE!
