1984. There was no award given in 1983 (the 56th academy award) for best Makeup, so we proceed to 1984 (57th academy award) Where the award is given to Paul Leblanc and Dick Smith for there amazing work on Amadeus.
The old age transformation on F. Murray Abraham as Antonio Salieri in Amadeus is still considered the best age progression makeup of all time.
"The most remarkable achievement in this field is the make-up and clothing that transformed the forty-year-old Salieri into a doddery, wrinkled, toothless old man. F. Murray Abraham’s excellent acting completes the illusion: his gaping mouth and wrinkled brow, along with the yellow skin and white strands of greasy hair, make him appear like a living mummy. Similarly, Mozart’s make-up throughout the film transfigures him from a radiant, rosy-cheeked youth into a pale and ill drunkard. This change applies also to his overall appearance.”
