‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Tops Nominations for Visual Effects Society Awards

The Wrap Tuesday, 15 January 2019
‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Tops Nominations for Visual Effects Society Awards“Avengers: Infinity War” leads all films in nominations for the Visual Effects Society’s 17th Annual VES Awards, which were announced on Tuesday.

The Marvel movie received six nominations, one more than “Ready Player One” and “Incredibles 2.”

In Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature, the VES category that corresponds most closely to the Oscars’ Best Visual Effects category, the nominees were “Avengers,” “Ready Player One,” “Christopher Robin,” “Solo: A Star Wars Story” and “Welcome to Marwen.”

“Incredibles 2” led all animated films, with “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” each receiving four nominations to trail “Incredibles” by one.

Other films with multiple nominations include “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” with three and “First Man” and “Aquaman” with two each.

Two of the 10 films that are on the Oscars short list in the Best Visual Effects category – “Black Panther” and “Mary Poppins” – did not receive any VES nominations. The omission may be particularly noteworthy for “Black Panther,” since one of the “Avengers” nominations is for the effects simulation in its creation of Wakanda, the fictional African country that first appeared in “Black Panther.”

In the television categories, “Lost in Space” led all shows with six nominations, while “Altered Carbon,” “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Cycles” received three and “The Deuce” and “The Man in the High Castle” received two.

Last year, VES’ Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature category was an exact match for the Oscars’ visual-effects nominees, though the winner was not the same: “War for the Planet of the Apes” took the VES Award, while “Blade Runner 2049” won the Oscar. It was the first time the two categories have matched exactly since the Oscars’ VFX category was expanded to five nominees in 2010.

Over the first 16 years of the VES Awards, almost 75 percent of the Oscar nominees have first been nominated in that category by the VES.

Winners will be announced at the VES Awards show on Feb. 5 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Also on that show, which will be hosted by Patton Oswalt, the VES Visionary Award will be presented to “Westworld” creator Jonathan Nolan, and the VES Award for Creative Excellence will go to “Game of Thrones” producers-writers-directors David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
