Visual effects are used in films to produce imagery not possible while producing the shot. CGI (computer generated imagery) receives most awards in this category at present. Films that create new techniques are normally set to win the award, however this year there wasn’t anything groundbreaking like that.
This year we have two war movies, 13 Hours and Hacksaw Ridge, a new Star Wars movie Rogue One, a musical in La La Land, and an extraterrestrial first-contact film Arrival. A lot of people were predicting Doctor Strange to get some love here but instead Marvel missed out entirely. Instead, complete underdog 13 Hours got a nomination… and I honestly forgot that movie even existed until seeing it on this list.
