    The VFX branch has come up with their shortlist. Here are the contenders:

    “Alice Through The Looking Glass”

    “Arrival”

    “The BFG”

    “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice”

    “Captain America: Civil War”

    “Deadpool”

    “Deepwater Horizon”

    “Doctor Strange”

    “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them”

    “Independence Day: Resurgence”

    “The Jungle Book”

    “Kubo and the Two Strings”

    “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”

    “Passengers”

    “Rogue One”

    “Star Trek Beyond”

    “Suicide Squad”

    “Sully”

    “Warcraft”

    “X-Men: Apocalypse

    Nothing too unexpected – although somewhat unusual to see an animated film in the mix. Interesting omission – I thought that A Monster Calls may have had an outside shot.

    Current Predictions:

    Jungle Book
    Dr. Strange
    Arrival
    Rogue One
    Passengers

    Although the meticulous nature of stop motion is still kept very old school with KUBO, there’s still an extraordinary amount of green screen at play to composite multiple elements together.  Essentially, a CG assist instead of effects animation outright.  Remember that A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS earned its only Oscar nod in this category.

     

    I’m guessing your final 5 are more on than off, though I wouldn’t be surprised if MISS PEREGRINE makes an appearance (I’m most skeptical of Disney’s JB).  The Star Trek reboot franchise scored a nod the last two times, but 3rd installments often don’t have the same traction.  I can’t even speak for ID4+20 since I didn’t see it, but the original did win this category, back in a much more analog age.

    Very sad that A Monster Calls missed out on a nomination here. It was suberb

    Everything is easy and boring to @JackO

    Does anyone else think The BFG has a real shot at a nomination?

    Admittedly, I skipped this one but a large chunk of the reviews I read directly criticized the effects work on Rylance so I would say unlikely.

    Arrival
    Jungle Book
    Star Wars
    Doctor Strange
    Fantastic Beasts

    Fantastic Beasts is probably in my sixth position but I am somewhat hedging with Passengers. I feel like it is being underestimated for lots of techs.

    Rylance gives a truly wonderful performance that helps the effects work immeasurably with his character.  But the rest of the giant clan just looks too cartoony.   I have a hard time seeing this get much of anything.

    Very surprised “A Monster Calls” missed the cut. That’s the biggest miss I think. The only other big omissions would be “Legend of Tarzan”, “Assassin’s Creed” and “Ghostbusters”, though none of those had great odds at getting nominated.

    Pleasantly surprised they cited “Kubo” and now sort of hoping it makes the cut.

    WINNER: Deepwater Horizon (Remember Ex Machina and What Dreams May Come, there are a lot of odd winners in this category, even for movies not beloved by the rest of the Academy.)

    NOMINEES: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Captain America: Civil War

    Doctor Strange

    Warcraft (Remember The Lone Ranger)

    I actually don’t see this as terribly easy to predict – I think Arrival*, Captain America, Doctor Strange*, Fantastic Beasts, Jungle Book*, Kubo, Passengers*, Rogue One*, Star Trek and Sully are all completely plausible nominees. Marked the ones I’m currently predicting.

    Just to clarify: this is not the shortlist yet. They are still going to narrow it down to ten films.
