Los Angeles - In an awards season that seems to have a ceremony for every facet of filmmaking, the Make-up and Hair Stylists Guild awards returned after a 10-year hiatus with an award for Johnny Depp.
The actor received the first ever distinguished artisan award for his work in films like Edward Scissorhands, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland.
Depp's honour was presented by his long-time collaborator and makeup artist Joel Harlow, who is nominated for an Academy Award this year for makeup in The Lone Ranger. Depp also starred in the film.
"This is a great honour, but glancing up at the screen I realise what a ridiculous thing I've done," joked Depp while accepting his trophy after clips of his work were shown at Paramount Studios theatre on Saturday evening.
"I mean seriously, why do they still give me jobs?" he added. "I've done a lot of things... I should probably apologise for a few, but I won't."
Praising the work of the makeup artists who've helped him "find the root of each character", the soft-spoken actor said he liked when his face was molded in A Nightmare on Elm Street.
"I found, oddly, that I liked being encased in all of that stuff," he said. "I try something different each time as an actor with the amazing help of makeup artists who have made my whole career."
