Superhero films have faced a tough time getting into the Academy Awards, but Disney is certainly pushing their chances for Infinity War.
After expanding nominations to 11 awards for Oscars, Disney is now looking forward to categories like Best Director, Best Cinematography, Costume design and more. Here’s the full list below:
Best Director: Anthony and Joe Russo
Best Adapted Screenplay: Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely
Best Film Editing: Jeffrey Ford, ACE, Matthew Schmidt
Best Cinematography: Trent Opaloch
Best Production Design: Charles Wood – Set Decorator: Leslie A. Pope
Best Costume Design: Judianna Makovsky
Best Makeup and Hairstyling: Janine Thompson, John Blake, Brian Sipe
Best Visual Effects: Dan Deleeuw, Kelly Port, Russell Earl, Dan Sudick
Best Sound Mixing: Re-Recording Mixers: Tom Johnson and Juan Peralta – Production Sound Mixer: John Pritchett, CAS
Best Sound Editing: Supervising Sound Editors: Shannon Mills and Daniel Laurie
Best Original Score: Alan Silvestri
This is still a smaller list when compared to Black Panthers’ For Your Consideration nominations. Black Panther has 16 nominations in total, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Several Best Supporting Actor nominations as well as several Best Supporting Actress nominations (Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, and Angela Bassett).
We’ll have to wait and see if Disney adds any more to the list for Infinity War, but they also have Incredibles 2, Mary Poppins Returns, and Ralph Breaks The Internet nominations on their For Your Consideration page, so it seems Disney will have a large footprint at the Oscars regardless of which project gets more nominations on the board.
