Oscar 2018: Visual Effects–List of 10 Films

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has selected 10 films in the visual effects category for the 90th Academy Awards.

AMPAS made the announcement on Monday.

As expected, the list is dominated by big-budget studio films, such as “Dunkirk,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” and “War for the Planet of the Apes.”

But the list also includes South Korean action-fantasy “Okja” and Guillermo del Toro’s Cold War tale “The Shape of Water,” which carries a budget of under $20 million.

List in alphabetical order:

“Alien: Covenant”

“Blade Runner 2049”


“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”

“Kong: Skull Island”


“The Shape of Water”

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

“Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”
