Superhero movies have had a difficult time getting into the Academy Awards picture, but Disney is definitely trying to up their chances for Avengers: Infinity War.
The studio is currently offering up 11 nominations for Oscars consideration, which is much expanded from the previous total of 1. That was for Best Visual Effects, but now Disney and Marvel have increased the nominations to include other categories like Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, and more. You can check out the full list of For Your Consideration Nominations below.
Best Director: Anthony and Joe Russo
Best Adapted Screenplay: Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely
Best Film Editing: Jeffrey Ford, ACE, Matthew Schmidt
Best Cinematography: Trent Opaloch
Best Production Design: Charles Wood - Set Decorator: Leslie A. Pope
Best Costume Design: Judianna Makovsky
Best Makeup and Hairstyling: Janine Thompson, John Blake, Brian Sipe
Best Visual Effects: Dan Deleeuw, Kelly Port, Russell Earl, Dan Sudick
Best Sound Mixing: Re-Recording Mixers: Tom Johnson and Juan Peralta - Production Sound Mixer: John Pritchett, CAS
Best Sound Editing: Supervising Sound Editors: Shannon Mills and Daniel Laurie
Best Original Score: Alan Silvestri
Now, that's still a smaller list when compared to Black Panther's For Your Consideration nominations. Black Panther has 16 in total, including Best Picture (Kevin Feige,p.g.a.), Best Director (Ryan Coogler), Best Actor (Chadwick Boseman), Several Best Supporting Actor nominations (Michael B. Jordan, Martin Freeman, Winston Duke, and more) as well as several Best Supporting Actress nominations (Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, and Angela Bassett).
We'll have to wait and see if Disney adds any more to the list for Infinity War, but they also have Incredibles 2, Mary Poppins Returns, and Ralph Breaks The Internet nominations on their For Your Consideration page, so it seems Disney will have a large footprint at the Oscars regardless of which project gets more nominations on the board.
As for Infinity War, you can check out the official synopsis below.0comments
