Does CGI Count as Make-Up?

In 'Benjamin Button,' apparently so

I thought that most of the miracle transformations of Brad Pitt's aging/de-aging in Benjamin Button were CGI induced. So how does it win Best Make-Up over The Dark Knight and Hellboy 2?

UPDATE: Button later won for Best Visual Effects -- and the little montage showed how they used CGI to age Brad Pitt's face. So, is it makeup or CGI?
