A make-up artist who has been nominated for an Oscar has pronounced a routine was “almost worse than an exam”.

Sian Grigg, from Cardiff, has been nominated for an Academy Award for her work with Leonardo DiCaprio on The Revenant.

Ms Grigg told BBC Radio Cymru it was a payoff though wondered if she would find work again after a ceremony.

“They contend it’s not a good thing to win an Oscar, hopefully we will work again,” she said.

DiCaprio thanked Ms Grigg during his acceptance debate during a Golden Globes, where he won a best actor endowment for a film.

“He apparently likes what we do or he wouldn’t ask me to do it again,” Ms Grigg told Dylan Jones’s programme.

Sian Grigg has also worked on films including Suffragette and Ex-Machina

“I’m unequivocally strict about make-up, we never like anything I’ve finished myself. we always try to do improved – we consider that’s because he’s happy to keep operative with me.”

Ms Grigg pronounced she listened before Christmas she had been shortlisted, and had to ready a 10-minute film of her work that she took to Los Angeles to uncover to members of a Academy and answer questions.

“It’s roughly worse than an exam… It’s a unequivocally peculiar experience. I’m not used to station on a theatre and articulate to people about a work we do.

“I’m most improved during doing it than articulate about it.”

Ms Grigg pronounced she was looking brazen to a ceremony, on 28 February.

“It will be a privilege, we unequivocally don’t know what to expect. we know I’ll need to go selling for a dress, we wish it will be a fun night.”
