Oscars and Other Movie Awards


#223

‘Sith’ wasn’t nominated.

‘King Kong’ won that year, and I can’t argue with that.


#224

Was, and still is for me. :slight_smile:


#225

As a matter of interest, is the award based on how clever or innovative the effects are, or how good they look on screen, or how well they serve the story, or how hard they were to make, or what? For example, crashing a plane into the Hudson might be fairly hum-drum these days, but if it serves its purpose in the story without distracting you (by being either too good or too bad), that’s clearly a really good use of a visual effect.


#226

I’ve only seen 7 of the films but out of those I would concur on The Jungle Book. Truly excellent work.


#227

It’s based on what a majority of VFX voters think is “best”.

That’s why some years a wall to wall, VFX heavy, fantasy film will get it and other times the winner will be a single robot that just worked perfectly.

The VFX Society has a range of categories; https://www.visualeffectssociety.com/awards/ves

The Academy has one, so that size has to fit all.


#228

#229

Deadpool got nominated for best musical? Sweet.


#230

So Mel Gibson starts getting nominations after they stop having Gervais as the host.
That’s disappointing.


#231

I would not want to be in that dogfight! Each one represents, what? Five thousand people and a dozen or so companies? Fierce!

#236

I think they’re in a bit of a Catch-22 with I, Daniel Blake, because if it wins anything it will be assumed to be a politically minded award, regardless of whether the film’s merits deserve it or not.


#237

Did they not get Silence screened for them in time or something?
No mention of it seems a little odd.


#238

I don’t think it’s shown up much in awards at all, aside from a few nominations for cinematography and screenplay. It was finished relatively close to release, so they probably didn’t get screeners sent out.


#239

Yep, Ruth is an overnight “Rising Star” after 15 years of work in TV and film. (Some may just know her as Raina, “the Woman in the Flowered Dress” from Agents of SHIELD.)


#240

That’s usually how overnight success works. :wink:


#241

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this. Has it been released in the US, yet?

Didn’t realize that M.R. Carey and Mike Carey refer to the same writer.


#242

No, not yet. It’s getting a limited release at the end of February. The DVD is out in the UK in two weeks.

It was one of my favourite movies of the last year, but people had problems with the book will probably have some of the same issues wit hit.
