Oscars Shortlist: 20 Films Left in the Hunt for Best Visual Effects Nominations at 92nd Academy Awards
Here we are only two months out from the Academy Awards and a little over a month away from the nominations. Today, the Best Visual Effects category has been parred down to twenty, with the biggest budget films filling the VFX landscape.
