    This category looks to be stacked next year:

    • Avengers: Endgame
    • Star Wars: Episode IX
    • Maleficent: Mistresss of Evil
    • The Lion King
    • Ad Astra
    • Aladdin
    • Alita: Battle Angel
    • Cats (Heard very good things about VFX)
    • The Irishman (De-Aging)
    • Missing Link
    • Dumbo
    • Artemis Fowl
    • Detective Pikachu
    • Captain Marvel
    • Spider Man: Far From Home
    • Frozen 2
    • Hobbs and Shaw
    • How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

    Any other movies that could be contenders? Early predictions?

    That is the truth.

    No exceptions.

    I’m calling it: Avengers: Endgame vs The Lion King.

    Also, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and Frozen 2 could be contenders. They are animated, sure, but there’s still so much visual effects they had to go through to make it look gorgeous- I saw HTTYD 3 and it is a visual SPLENDOR, and Frozen 2 looks to be so too based on the trailer. Animated films have been nominated before, too- Kubo and the Two Strings and The Nightmare Before Christmas (admittedly they are stop motion, but still).

    Oscars 2020: I stan Joaquin Phoenix, Willem Dafoe, Alan Silvestri, and Dean Deblois.

    Emmys 2020: I stan Logan Lerman, Olivia Colman, and David Harbour.

    Tom Hanks and Amy Adams stan in general.

    Apparently, the CGI in The Irishman is proving to be trickier than Scorsese thought. Some facial features/expressions have been lost due to the de-aging CGI and he’s trying to figure out how to fix it. The end result doesn’t sound like it’s going to be that good.

    Also got banned because...reasons? So, I guess ciao.

    The Lion King is still the frontrunner here, regardless of what people think about it. The Jungle Book won in 2016, and The Lion King’s visual effects are even more spectacular. I could maybe see The Irishman win, but the fact that some people weren’t as enamored by the effects in certain places will probably hurt it. And Ad Astra bombed way harder than First Man did last year, so that film will be lucky to be nominated.

    If The Irishman wins this, then look out Picture winner.

    I don’t think it would signal that much strength. The nominee pool is normally four blockbusters and one best picture nominee OR movie that was in the best picture conversation at some point. Typically, the winner of this award is that movie- the one that is or feels like a BP nominee.

    Given the crop of movies in the best picture conversation this year, The Irishman and maybe 1917 are the only ones which predominantly feature the type of VFX this branch supports. I say maybe 1917 because the branch snubbed Dunkirk. Either way, I think the winner of this award is one of those two films should it be nominated and it’s not a signal for strength of a the movie in picture as much as it is the Academy liking to reward prestige pictures over commercial ones.

    Edit: I forgot about 2016. That year is wild and pretty much discredits what I just wrote but I’m going to stand by it.

    I’m assuming you mean 2016 ceremony, as in Ex Machina, rather than 2016 films as in The Jungle Book – in which case it doesn’t discredit what you wrote as Ex Machina partly benefitted from vote-splitting between the three Best Picture nominees plus the most effects-dominated contender The Force Awakens. It was a very rare exception to a rule that has remained pretty dependable since Forrest Gump.

    Do people wanna talk about this? The shortlist came out. Cross out Aladdin, Captain Marvel and Midway because if those get nominated, I’m done.

    Pulling for Alita and Avengers.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    How’s that for a dichotomy.

    What would be so bad about Captain Marvel getting nominated? Their work on SLJ was leagues better than the de-aging in The Irishman.

    The Lion King
    The Irishman
    1917
    Alita
    Cats?

    No, it doesn’t. The entire movie was CGI. That is a ton of work for the visual effects team.

    the entire movie? Wasn’t it just like deniro, pacino and pesci? Like their faces? Or was there more that I didn’t realize was cgi? I thought the deaging stuff was just awful.
