20 contenders advance in visual effects Oscar race

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences raised the curtain on its list of contenders for the visual effects Oscar. The 20 pics include superhero blockbusters, the next Star Wars film, war movies, a Netflix original and the upcoming adaptation of one of Broadway’s biggest hit musicals.

‘Avengers: Endgame,’ ‘Cats,’ ‘The Irishman,’ and ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ are among the 20 films that will vie at the Oscars for best visual effects, Variety wrote.

Later this month, the Academy’s Visual Effects Branch Executive Committee will select a shortlist of 10 films that will advance to nominations voting. Oscar nominations will be announced on January 13, with the hardware being presented at the 92nd Annual Academy Awards on February 9, at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

‘First Man’ nabbed the visual effects trophy last year for the visual effects team of Paul Lambert, Ian Hunter, Tristan Myles, and J. D. Schwalm. ‘Blade Runner 2049’ won the Oscar for films released in 2017. Recent past winners include ‘The Jungle Book,’ ‘Ex Machina,’ ‘Interstellar,’ ‘Gravity,’ ‘Life of Pi,’ ‘Hugo,’ ‘Inception,’ ‘Avatar,’ and ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.’
