Make-up has always been one of the strong suits of the franchise with many awards and nominations through the decades. Discovery was nominated for the same Guild award in 2020 and Star Trek: Picard was nominated in 2021. All three previous seasons of Discovery were nominated for Emmys for Prosthetic Makeup, with wins in 2019 and 2021.

Awesome! In addition to Lower Decks and Disco I would think Prodigy would be in contention for nominations given it’s original release (in between the other two).

Congratulations on the recognition of the work!!
