FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: VISUAL EFFECTS

Avengers: Infinity War (Marvel Studios / Disney)

This will be between Avengers: Infinity War, which won the Visual Effects Society’s top prize and First Man, which took the group’s supporting visual effects win – it’s definitely a contender and the only film with other nominations.

Both BAFTA and Critics’ Choice went for Black Panther, which did not earn a nomination here despite landing a Best Picture nod.

I’m giving the edge to Avengers: Infinity War, which would make it the first Marvel film to win for Visual Effects. It would also end the losing streak for Dan Sudick who is on his 9th Oscar nomination.

1. AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR – Dan DeLeeuw, Kelly Port, Russell Earl and Dan Sudick (VES)
2. FIRST MAN – Paul Lambert, Ian Hunter, Tristan Myles and J.D. Schwalm (VES)
3. READY PLAYER ONE – Roger Guyett, Grady Cofer, Matthew E. Butler and David Shirk
4. SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY – Rob Bredow, Patrick Tubach, Neal Scanlan and Dominic Tuohy
5. CHRISTOPHER ROBIN – Christopher Lawrence, Michael Eames, Theo Jones and Chris Corbould
VES – Visual Effects Society

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
