Blank Panther getting a BP nom because of its social relevance may be a stretch, but it getting nominated for best visual effects is an insult to every VFX-heavy film to come out in the past 10 years.
This is unacceptable.
I dunno what you have against BP but people in the industry evaluate criteria differently than we do and there's tons of amazing VFX in that movie. Wakanda is a marvel of design and execution, and a lot of what's good about it is really challenging to do even if it doesn't always look like it. Some bad CGI here or there doesn't change the whole.
IE, Ex Machina had a lot of VFX that might look simple to the average viewer but people in the industry recognized the difficulty in executing that achievement.
are you sure since you're the one who keeps taking shots at it in multiple threads for months
I don't like the film very much.
The CGI is objectively bad in a majority of scenes. This isn't news. This was even brought up numerous times by people reviewing it positively when the film first came out.
These two things are not connected.
If you re-read the thread, many agreed the CGI looked terrible and we assumed it wasn't final (but boy were we wrong). I was also anticipating the film unlike most MCU films, so don't make it seem like I have some vendetta against this film. It just disappointed me, and I don't think it shouldn't have gotten the levels of critical praise it's getting.
