It really seems to me that Marvel Studios’ films have always had stellar effects that always seem to lose most years, even in the year they most deserved it in The Avengers. Will Marvel ever get a movie that wins Best Visual Effects?March 6, 2016 at 3:52 pm #220391
I could see it, if no Best Picture contenders are up for the prize.March 6, 2016 at 3:56 pm #220392
If Ex Machina can beat out BP contenders Mad Max, The Martian and The Revenant… with Supporting visual effects no less…March 6, 2016 at 6:11 pm #220393
Spider-Man 2 won, but I guess you mean 2008 and after. The thing is, Visual Effects are getting more and more artsy. If you look at recent winners, it’s the visual masterpieces, like Avatar, Life of Pi, Hugo, Gravity, and Inception that have been winning. Action type movies aren’t having as easy a time as they used to in the category. Marvel could win eventually, but it would have to be in a year without one of those types of movies.March 7, 2016 at 9:28 am #220394
^ I forgot about Spider-Man 2 winning. I should’ve known, that’s my favourite Marvel movie. I was kind of meaning the ones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe starting with Iron Man.March 7, 2016 at 12:27 pm #220395
Based solely on advanced hype, I think Doctor Strange could, but that will depend on A. The competition and B. How great a movie it actually is.March 7, 2016 at 12:34 pm #220396
Ex Machina was still a PGA/Screenplay nominated movie. Will those other Marvel movies have that general popularity?March 7, 2016 at 2:58 pm #220397
I’m not sure how to answer the OP except that I doubt Marvel will have such luck this year. I’ve got a hunch that The BFG will win unless it ends up being a flop of gigantic proportions (lol). If an robotic Alicia Vikander can win VFX Oscar, a giant Mark Rylance certainly can. Plus it is Spielberg.March 7, 2016 at 3:16 pm #220398
It’s almost mandatory to dismiss the 2015 VFX award out of hand because of the wrong film winning it.March 8, 2016 at 9:09 pm #220399
I think there’s an excellent chance that the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel will be a frontrunner in 2017. It’s going to be a juggernaut at the Box Office, will feature an extensive amount of space effects, albeit with the new Star Wars competing against it. After that though, look at 2018-2020 as locks for those avatar sequels.

Like how The Hobbit was a triple lock because The Lord of the Rings swept?March 9, 2016 at 7:24 am #220401

I don’t think it’s at all the same. If you read about what Cameron has been doing effect-wise with these Avatar sequels, then you know they’re going to be visually amazing if nothing else. I’m almost convinced I’m the only one really looking forward to these movie anymore.
