    This year will be really great in this category. I think we already have three locks:

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi – It’s a Star Wars movie, so there’s nothing to discuss

    War for the Planet of the Apes – The two previously movie were nominated, perfect mocap

    Dunkirk – If even the divisive sci-fi Interstellar could win because of great use of practical VFX, why not an epic movie from a more awards-friendly genre?

    3rd installments are a tough sell for this category.  The third Jurassic Park didn’t score a nod even though its effects were easily as good as THE LOST WORLD and the 3rd SW prequel installment became the first (and to date, only) film from that franchise to not score a nod either.  So even though I would’ve given the Oscar to both Apes films, I’m not sure a nod this year is a foregone conclusion.

    And to say DUNKIRK is a lock is sheer nonsense.  Nolan has a good track record here but remember THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (another #3) didn’t score any nods anywhere, so assuming its in by pedigree alone if wrong.  I’m also skeptical about the new Alien film, which (from the looks of the trailer) goes back to the haunted house meme that is more spooks and less vfx eye candy (compared to, say, PROMETHEUS).

    Here’s hoping some original films and surprise nominees make the cut beyond the expected sequels and reboots.

    The third Jurassic Park movie was just terrible, even worse than the second, which was already bad. The third Star Wars movie wasn’t nominated because in 2005 the VFX category had only three nominees and that year all the nominees (King Kong, Narnia, War of the Worlds) were unbeatable, mainly considering that the VFX of the Star Wars prequels are mostly bad.

    The Dark Knight Rises was a blockbuster superhero film, while Dunkirk will be an epic war film. Which one of the two seems more interesting for the awards voters?

    This looks like a really awesome year for VFX. War of the Planet of the Apes, Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Wars, Alien, Blade Runner, Downsizing, Life, Pirates, Wonder Woman, amongst others. Holy crap, just choosing five will be incredibly hard.

    I caught an advance screening of Kong: Skull Island last week.  The effects are what you would expect from a $190 million budget, but they are also the effects that have come to be taken for granted and I doubt that it can sustain itself from March.  See also the snubs of Godzilla, Pacific Rim and most Marvel movies.  Gigantic monsters fighting each other kind of just seems like animation; it is not innovative in integrating people like Ex Machina and The Jungle Book.

    Entertaining movie though.  Bad dialogue, but thrilling action.  I am sure that it is just like every King Kong movie every made.  It is such a reliable formula: “Oh my god, a giant monkey is on this island!  Kill it!  Look; now it is fighting an even bigger monster!”  The movie was surprisingly standalone, considering that it is part of a new franchise and precedes a sequel in which it will battle Godzilla.

    Blade Runner 2049
    Downsizing
    Ghost in the Shell
    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
    Star Wars: The Last Jedi
    Thor: Ragnarök
    War for the Planet of the Apes

    My bet right now is that the final five will come from these ones. With Apes as the closest to be a lock/frontrunner.

    Don’t forget about Annihilation by the guy who was behind ex machina. Theres so many movies with XF this year also Wonder Woman could be a contender maybe.

    Don’t underestimate Spider-Man: Homecoming in Best Visual Effects. Keep in mind that Spider Man 2 is still the only Marvel movie to ever win an Oscar.

    Even though I predicted both Kubo and the 2 Strings AND Deepwater Horizon to get nominated for Best Visual Effects, many others did not. What do you think is likely to be this year’s shocking inclusion(s) by the VFX branch of the Academy? Since Saving Private Ryan got nominated, could Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk sneak in there?

    I think that’s a good reason to not *over*estimate its chances.
