‘Quantumania,’ ‘The Marvels’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3.’ Among the Best Visual Effects Oscar Finalists


It’s that time of the year again when various big-budget productions are lining up nominations for various awards, and Marvel Studios has plenty of projects eligible. ‘Loki’ has already scored Critics Choice TV Awards nominations for Best Drama Drama, Best Actor (Tom Hiddleston), Best Supporting Actor (Ke Huy Quan), and Best Supporting Actress (Sophia Di Martino). 

The annual 51st Saturn Awards, which tend to honor sci-fi and high-fantasy projects, had their pick as well, nominating ‘Secret Invasion’ and ‘She-Hulk’ for the award of Best Superhero Series, to the utter shock of fans, considering that ‘Secret Invasion’ was nonsensical and ‘She-Hulk’ for the better part unwatchable. The movies ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,’ and ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ were nominated for Best Superhero movie as well. 

‘Ms. Marvel’ scored its first Emmy for Outstanding Motion Design. Now the news is that Marvel Studio has three finalists for visual effects as well since ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ and ‘The Marvels,’ have all passed into the next round. 

Superhero movies might not be favorites among the academy, as lots of high-profile actors and directors openly criticized the entire genre, but you can’t deny the quality of visual effects that go into these types of movies. Alongside MCU, the soon-defunct DCEU also has its horse in the race as ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ is also among the finalists.

Sony’s ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ has also found itself nominated for visual effects, the third animated movie ever to be nominated alongside ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ and ‘Kubo and the Two Strings.’ 

Despite the heavy use of practical effects, ‘Blue Beetle,’ ‘The Little Mermaid,’ ‘The Flash’ and ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ haven’t received a single nomination.
