I was contemplating Palpatine (a character both wonderful and terrible, in terms of writing and acting), and I remembered: didn't he look creepy in Attack of the Clones? Yes:


However, what happened in Revenge of the Sith? Palpatine "de-aged."

He's actually wearing very little makeup, as off-set interviews with Ian McDiarmid suggest. When I got that issue of Star Wars Insider (yes, I used to subscribe) with Episode II Palpatine's face on the cover, I was thrilled. This was how he was to become the disfigured horror in Return of the Jedi: gradually. However, Episode III tossed that out the window, and furthermore, what is wrong with the Emperor Palpatine makeup?


He's fat. I can't explain it otherwise. There are huge slabs of clay on his face, apparently placed in a vein attempt to make old McDiarmid look like young, evil McDiarmid.

It's just funny, I thought, because even the makeup in Revenge of the Sith sucks.

You still remmember what happened at the Oscars? And you make a thread NOW?

As to an anwser I think that they just needed to give the last Star Wars SOMETHING so they said: "wtf, lets give it the award nobody cares about"

Palpatine, I believe, is actually the thing they were referring to with the award.

I don't think they get nominated for one character, and even then, Palpatine's make-up was worth a nomination. though not nessecarily the win.

The only thing Episode 3 deserves is to be buried six feet under ground with hundreds of C4 bombs which detonate and reassemble themselves, destroying the movie again every 5 seconds.
