    I feel that the Marvel Studios always does an unbelievable job in the visual effects department and I am always sad that they never won and feel like they should for all their hard work they do.

    What do you think? Will it ever happen?

    Will it ever happen? Yes. When? Who knows? It’s hard to release two to three big-budget effects extravaganzas every year that are also typically well-received by critics and not eventually win for visual effects. It’ll be tough, since they’ll be competing with Star Wars movies for the foreseeable future, but it’ll happen.

    Right now, Doctor Strange seems like their best bet, but we’ll just have to wait and see when they release the eventual winner.

    Yeah but this year probably not because of The Jungle Book.

    Am I the only one here who thinks The Jungle Book will get snubbed completely for Best Visual Effects? I thought they looked stale and lifeless, much like George Lucas’ Star Wars prequels. The environments, the very quality of the CGI itself, all felt so bland and artificial it’s been making me wonder if this could be one of those big shockers on nominations morning.

    I think Infinity War MAYBE could win Visuals, depending on how strong the competition is, and if it gets UNIVERSAL critical acclaim. But if Ex Machina winning this category proves anything, it shows Best Visual Effects is the Oscar category that’s taken the least seriously by voters. Was Ex Machina one of the year’s best movies? Probably. The best VISUAL Effects? I don’t think so.

    Bottom line, realistically I think the snob appeal is to overwhelming within the Academy for them ever to give a Marvel movie any Oscar. Even I thought Guardians of the Galaxy would win Makeup and Hairstyling, ala J. J. Abrams 1st Star Trek film, another critically acclaimed sci-fi franchise blockbuster. Alas, it was not to be. 🙁

    I’d like to say The Jungle Book will win, but last year’s Ex-Machina victory throws out what we always knew about the category…that “best” means “most” to many of these voters.

    If given to many “most” pictures….they’ll opt out for the film that stands out.

    True… but I Forgot I already had that, and I wanted to ask it again now that Civil War was successful.

    Sorry, but The Jungle Book, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story or Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is winning Best Visual Effects.

    No. Their films are too basic to get over the hump. I’d reward 100 Ex Machina’s before I reward 1 Marvel.
