Oppenheimer Gets Snubbed in Oscars VFX Race

Oppenheimer will not receive an Oscar nomination in the Visual Effects category at the 2024 Academy Awards as Christopher Nolan’s latest blockbuster film did not even make the initial shortlist.

As reported by Variety, 20 films have been selected for VFX Oscar consideration and will now proceed to the next round of voting, taking place December 14 to 18. The list features several predicted titles, a few surprises, and some major snubs, including Oppenheimer, which is notably missing from the group of finalists.Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, and Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon: Part One – A Child of Fire are among the Visual Effects Oscar finalists on the list, which will go through multiple rounds of voting before being whittled down to five nominees. The full shortlist is as follows:

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quanumania
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom
The Boys in the Boat
The Creator
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves
Godzilla: Minus One
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny
Killers of the Flower Moon
The Marvels
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One
Poor Things
Rebel Moon: Part One – A Child of Fire
Society of the Snow
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts
The list caused quite a stir, with people taking to X/Twitter to air their views on the finalists in the aftermath of the announcement. The general consensus seemed to be that Oppenheimer was “robbed” after not being unveiled as a possible contender in the VFX Oscar category despite Nolan’s mastery of cinematic imagery.
