Hi! I am the Managing Editor for Nerdbot.com I enjoy watching anime, learning about new things and keeping up with Nerd Culture. I love writing and hope to introduce people to things that they may not have known about before through my articles.

When you think of Aquaman you undoubtedly think, oh yeah that movie had crazy effects. Well the Academy Awards just released their list for Virtual Effects Nominees and Aquaman is no where on it.

The list is as follows:

  1. Ant-Man and the Wasp
  2. Avengers: Infinity War
  3. Black Panther
  4. Christopher Robin
  5. First Man
  6. Jurrasic Park: Fallen Kingdom
  7. Mary Poppins Returns
  8. Ready Player One
  9. Solo A Star Wars Movie
  10. Welcome to Marwen

This list is not only far too many Marvel movies but between that and Disney they almost completely dominate the nominees. I understand Disney is an amazing company and Marvel has been on top of it lately but c’mon guys, did you see Aquaman? The first film almost completely underwater! There were effects for everything under the sea and some on land. The way the hair moved with the current was as amazing to watch as it was incredible to produce.

James Wan and Kelvin McIlwain are not very happy about this either.
McIlwain being the visual effects supervisor on the film. James Wan in one tweet citing exactly what I was saying earlier with the hair visuals.

So what do you think? Was Aquaman skipped over? Do the Academy Awards even mean anything anymore? Tell Nerdbot in the comments!
