This is why Marvel has never won an Oscar for Best Visual Effects
Marvel’s curse in the Best Visual Effects category of the Oscars is like what happened to Star Wars, leaving the MCU without any victories in the Academy
It is said that Marvel movies are all about visual effects, but strangely enough, the MCU has never managed to get an Oscar award in this category for over a decade. Superhero adaptations already accumulate 13 nominations for their VFX, but none have been proclaimed winners. At least for now. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will celebrate the 95th edition of the Oscars this Sunday, March 12 and Marvel will have a new opportunity in it. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will try to break the curse, but it won't be easy. They will take on Top Gun: Maverick, All Quiet on the Western Front, The Batman, and Avatar: The Way of Water.
The curse of Marvel and Star Wars at the Oscars
Marvel's situation in this category is reminiscent of what happened with Star Wars. Although back in 1977 Episode IV (A New Hope) won the statuette for Best Visual Effects, the George Lucas saga did not taste the sweetness of success again. And it wasn’t because it wasn’t nominated! The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, The Rise of Skywalker, Rogue One, and Han Solo: A Star Wars Story were all nominated as well, but despite what many of us would have believed upon leaving the cinema, none seemed worthy enough to come out victorious again. 7 nominations and 1 win.
Marvel Movies Nominated for Best Visual Effects
