‘The Creator’, ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ Lead Visual Effects Society Nominations

“The Creator” and “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” led all films in nominations for the Visual Effects Society’s VES Awards, which were announced on Tuesday morning. The former film received seven nominations to lead all live-action features, while the latter received seven to lead the animated films.

“The Last of Us” was the most-nominated television project, with six nominations.

Other films with multiple nominations include “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” with six; “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem” with four; and “John Wick: Chapter 4,” with three.

The seven nominations for “The Creator” and “Spider-Man” were far short of the record 14 nominations received by “Avatar: The Way of Water” last year. The VES Awards have 25 categories that cover photoreal and animated features, episodic work, commercials, games, and real-time, CG and student projects.

Nominees for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature category, the VES category that corresponds most closely with the Oscar for Best Visual Effects, the nominees are “The Creator,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves,” “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” and “Oppenheimer.”

“The Creator,” “Spider-Man” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” are also on the 10-film shortlist in the Oscars’ Best Visual Effects category, along with “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” “Napoleon” and “Society of the Snow,” which received two VES nominations each; “Godzilla Minus One” and “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One,” which received one each; and “Poor Things” and “Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire,” which were not nominated for any VES Awards.

Nominees were selected by VES members who attended 39 special in-person and virtual nomination events over a 36-hour period.

Winners will be announced at the 222 annual VES Awards on Feb. 21 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
