Perhaps, as a precursor for its nomination for the Best Visual Effects in Oscars 2019, Avengers: Infinity War dominated at the 17th Visual Effects Society Awards that was held on February 5. Taking the top honour of Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature, Avengers: Infinity War became the first Marvel movie to get that credit, while also bagging three more awards in other categories (even Thanos gets one!). What's even more interesting is that Black Panther, the Marvel movie that has got the most nominations in any award show, was not even nominated for Visual Effects Society Awards. Even the much hyped Wakanda sequence found itself nominated for Infinity War rather than in Black PantherAvengers: Endgame Super Bowl Teaser: Did The Russo Brothers Explicitly Edit A Character From The New Promo?

In the animated movie features, it was another Marvel film that took away the biggies. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse got away with four wins in the animated feature category, including Outstanding Visual Effects in an Animated Feature. Other big winners include Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, Netflix's Lost in Space, Damien Chazelle's First Man et al. Why, even the disappointing Mortal Engines got an award. Avengers Endgame 2019: ‘Some People Move On, But Not Us’ Say Avengers As They Prep For A Bigger Battle.
