We will be bestowing for the rst time ever, the honor of e Chair Award, to award-winning actor Doug Jones, whose legendary characters have been created beneath masterful make-up and prosthetics while sitting for hours in "the chair." If you talk to any number of the top make-up artists and hair stylists in our industry, they will tell you Doug Jones is a true pleasure to work and collaborate with. He is a talented, consummate professional with in nite patience while morphing into all his memorable characters. Doug is an actor who has won multiple awards for iconic roles over a 35-year career but can walk down the street or sit in a restaurant usually without ever being recognized, as during most roles, his true face and body is hidden beneath make-up, wigs, and prosthetics. Some memorable roles include the Amphibian Man in Guillermo del Toro's e Shape of Water, dual roles of Pan and Pale Man in another Oscar-winning lm—Pan's Labyrinth, Sapien in Hellboy and Hellboy II, as well as his work in such shows as Star Trek: Discovery, Bu y the Vampire Slayer and Steven Spielberg's series Falling Skies. No one is more deserving of this honor. We all wish him heartfelt congratulations.
