The Emmy Award-winning hairstylist and makeup artist Marc Pilcher died of COVID-19 on Sunday despite being double vaccinated against the virus. He was 53 years old.
Pilcher died just two weeks after attending the Emmy Awards ceremony, full of unmasked liberal elite celebrities.
“It is with the deepest of hearts we confirm that Marc Elliot Pilcher, Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award-winning hair and makeup designer/stylist, passed away after a battle with COVID-19 on Sunday, October 3, 2021,” Pilcher’s family told Variety.
After describing Pilcher’s early career in hair and makeup, his family went on to add that, “in 2019 he was nominated for an Academy Award for his hairstyling on Mary Queen of Scots. Most recently, he had won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Period And/Or Character Hairstyling for his work on [Season 1] of Netflix’s critically acclaimed ‘Bridgerton.'”
Pilcher won his first Emmy Award on September 19, and he was in Los Angeles to accept the award in person. Fox News reported that Pilcher tested negative for COVID-19 several times to attend the ceremony, but he became sick shortly after returning home.
“He was 53, double vaccinated with no underlying health condition,” his family added in their statement.
Nicola Coughlan, who stars on “Bridgerton,” paid tribute to Pilcher on social media.
“So heartbroken by the loss of Marc Pilcher, the brilliant and visionary Hair and Makeup designer for Bridgerton Season One,” she tweeted. “Marc was so passionate about his work and so tremendously talented. Not even a month ago, he won his first Emmy award.”

Last month, we reported on this year’s controversial Emmys, during which the vast majority of A-list attendees enjoyed the event without masks while those working the show were forced to mask up. Social media users were quick to call out these Hollywood stars, the vast majority of whom are liberal, for their hypocrisy.
Why is it that only “the help” have to wear masks at the Emmy’s?
First it was the Met Gala. And now this. Seems that Covid-19 gives you a pass if you are wearing black tie or a designer frock. Or maybe it is just one rule for one group…and one for another. pic.twitter.com/H4DSLJ9w1D

Comedian Seth Rogan even commented on the hypocrisy of those attending the Emmy Awards during the show.
“Let me start by saying there is way too many of us in this little room! What are we doing?” Rogan said as he took the stage to present an award. “They said this was outdoors! It’s not! They lied to us.”
Rogan went on to say that it was “insane” for so many people to be packed into such a small space during a pandemic.
It will certainly be interesting to see how the liberal elites of Hollywood respond to Pilcher’s death and how the media reports on the death of someone who is double vaccinated.
