“Charlie’s Angels” star and producer Drew Barrymore, 26, is the first recipient of an award named for her illustrious acting family. The Barrymore Award, from the Hollywood Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist Guild, goes to the actress or actor whose body of work has had a “profound impact” on the artistry of hair and makeup in the entertainment industry, according to Al Fama, chairman of the union’s awards committee. The award was so named, he said, because “the Barrymore family is the most accomplished family of actors in the history of Hollywood.” The Barrymore dynasty harkens back to Drew’s great grandparents, actors Maurice Barrymore and Georgiana Drew, who gave birth to actors Lionel, Ethel and John Barrymore. Drew’s father, John Barrymore Jr. (also known as John Drew Barrymore), was the son of John Barrymore and screen beauty Dolores Costello.
