An Oscar nomination for…Jackass?!

We’re not sure about you but Jackass is not something that springs to mind when we think of the swanky Academy Awards!

However, thanks to talented make-up artist Stephen Prouty, Johnny Knoxville’s creation, Bad Grandpa, could bag them an Oscar.

Prouty is up for the Academy Award for Makeup and Hairstyling. He only had praise for Knoxville when talking about the work they did: “he’s completely covered with make-up and also has to introduce the narrative of the story in it. It was super-impressive.”

Have a look at the trailer to see the amazing transformation that will hopefully earn Prouty the much-deserved Academy Award.
