Winners // 17th VISUAL EFFECTS SOCIETY AWARDS

Marvel sets up for a first Oscar win for visual effects.



Both Avengers: Infinity War and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse earned Marvel some much-anticipated wins from the Visual Effects Society.


Marvel (and superhero films, in general) has had a hard time breaking into Oscar front-runner status. Despite earning several nods over the years, its cinematic universe of films has yet to produce a single Oscar win. In visual effects, Spider-Man 2 holds the title as the only superhero film to earn the award.


With its win at the Visual Effects Society Awards, the latest Avengers film should follow suit with an Oscar win.


Patton Oswalt hosted the 17th VES Awards. Johnathan Nolan received the Visual Effects Society's Visionary Award. David Benioff and D.B Weiss received the award for creative excellence. Chris Meledandri, CEO of Illumination, earned the lifetime achievement award.
