In craft categories, Netflix’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom won for both costume design and makeup/hairstyling, with hairstylists Mia Neal and Jamika Wilson becoming the first Black winners in that category. Amazon’s Sound of Metal won for best film editing and sound. Netflix’s Mank won for cinematography and production design, and Warner Bros.’ Tenet won in the visual effects category.
