Avengers: Infinity War didn't get the Best Picture nomination at the 2019 Oscars that Black Panther did, but it did get an Academy Award nomination for Best Achievement in Visual Effects - and Marvel fans all that film was a lock for it.
...But they were very wrong.
Ryan Gosling's Neil Armstrong moon mission telling managed to snag the Best Achievement in Visual Effects Oscar - one of biggest upsets of the night, by far. Needless to say, the fact that Avengers: Infinity War didn't get an Oscar now has Marvel fans feeling some kind of way!
*Reads in best Arrow voice.
To say that I'm shocked that Avengers: Infinity War didn't win the Award for Best Visual Effects is an understatement. I feel like they down right got robbed. ??#Oscars— Justin Parviz (@ARSHY89) February 25, 2019
A lot of fans want law enforcement to step in do something about this robbery in progress.
When another historical space movie that has been done before wins an Oscar for best visual effects when it’s against Avengers Infinity War or Ready player one #TheOscars #What #WTFMoment pic.twitter.com/LpaDiOypnk— Soundwaverulz (@Soundwaverules) February 25, 2019
We are all Kanye, right now...
How could Infinity War not get the Best Visual from #Oscars ??— Fangirl of everything (@ebb1998) February 25, 2019
Have they not seen Avengers Infinity War???
Maybe they've started choosing Oscars without actually watching the films? ?♂️
Oh man, Paul Rudd looked so disappointed when he looked at that card and saw First Man instead of Avengers: Infinity War, won the #Oscars award for best visual affects.— Yve La Rosa (@yviela88) February 25, 2019
Why? Why send the most affable actor in the MCU up there to die on the hill of one of its greatest disappointments?
This snub has Marvel fans feeling like Thanos might've been on to something.
I’m sorry but Avengers: Infinity War was better than Black Panther. The fact that it can’t win an Oscar is just silly. It’s got incredible acting performances, incredible effects and I’m sorry there isn’t one movie I would have rather watched last year. #oscars2019— John Bartmon (@WhiteWolf819) February 25, 2019
Watch out for these so-called Marvel fans, for they are out there.
While I think Avengers Infinity War should have won for best VFX, I can't muster any argument against First Man#Oscars— Utsav Bansal (@realUtsavBansal) February 25, 2019
The one guy who seems to accept this fate.
the pain I felt for Avengers: Infinity War being snubbed got taken away by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper #Oscars— ryan (@ryanchessum) February 25, 2019
The pain was deep for a moment there, but (wait for it...) we're in the shallows now.
