The author is the son of Monte Westmore, father of McKenzie Westmore and brother of Marvin Westmore, and Monty Westmore, also a make-up artist. His family is heavily involved in the Hollywood make-up business. In 1917 his grandfather George Westmore had created the first studio make-up department. Michael's father was a make-up artist for Gone with the Wind and his uncle was Bud Westmore, famous for co-creating the creature in Creature from the Black Lagoon. Westmore won an Academy Award for Makeup for the 1985 Cher film Mask, and has been nominated three other times, for 2010 (1984), The Clan of the Cave Bear (1986) and Star Trek: First Contact (1996). He has won nine Emmy Awards, and was nominated for at least one Emmy every year from 1984 to 2005 (as well as from 1976 to 1978). He has also suggested that he may be indirectly responsible for the addition of a make-up award at the Oscars as he was put forward for a special Oscar in 1980 for his work on Raging Bull, and after it was turned down there was such a reaction that a proper award was instituted during the following year.
