Earlier this morning, PEOPLE reported sightings of Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp (as if he needs an introduction) and fiancée Amber Heard browsing the poetry section of the well-known Brattle Book Shop in Boston’s Downtown Crossing. Why? Because they’re making a tour of the country’s oldest bookstores? Nope. Depp will be spending the summer in Beantown filming Black Mass, the Warner Bros.–backed story of infamous South Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.

And Bostonians, there’s even better news. Boston Magazine has released the filming dates and locations of Black Mass.  And not just the general area, but the exact addresses and street corners. Now, if you’re new to Rue La La, you may not realize that our offices are located in the now-fairly-gentrified South Boston neighborhood. So, will I be proposing a team outing to said street corners? Yes. Yes, I will.

In the world of acting awards, Johnny Depp is, in my opinion, one of Tinseltown’s most under-recognized artists (in terms of trophies won, anyway). Which might explain why I was so excited to learn that Depp has, in fact, won an award that I didn’t even know he was up for. The best part? It’s for his makeup.

Okay, I’m not talking about that kind of makeup. Although Depp is known for his guyliner both on and off set, this time his passion for movie makeup is what’s generating buzz. The actor has been named the first-ever recipient of the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild’s Distinguished Artisan Award. Translation? The Guild’s members are honoring Depp’s use of their crafts in transforming himself – both physically and emotionally – into the characters he plays on screen. Exhibit A: Captain Jack Sparrow.

Here’s hoping he dishes on some application tips in his acceptance speech.
