The list contains Spider-Man: No Way Home and The Matrix Resurrections; and it comprises ten of 2021’s blockbuster films that have been chosen for a slot on the 2022 Oscars nominations list for visual effects. On February 8, 2022, the nominees will be announced.

The 93rd Academy Awards were a one-of-a-kind event; as the film industry was severely impacted by the continuing coronavirus pandemic. Due to the closure of theatres, many films had to reschedule their intended release dates; including long-awaited pictures such as Daniel Craig’s final James Bond film, No Time To Die. 

The Oscars were finally held on April 25, 2021, and in a COVID-19-friendly fashion, honours were given out to the best films released that year.

The public praised the majority of the 2021 Oscar winners, but all eyes were on the Best Actor Award. Many people were surprised that it was moved to the end, where the Best Picture award is usually given.

Anthony Hopkins, for his remarkable performance in The Father; and the late Chadwick Boseman, for his astonishing performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom; were the two favourites to win the prize.

The Academy Award’s Visual Effects team has decided to list ten blockbuster films for its nominee shortlist; rather than their more customary choices of lesser-known treasures, according to The Playlist. Black Widow, Dune, Eternals, Free Guy, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Godzilla vs. Kong; No Time To Die,

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings; Spider-Man: No Way Home and The Matrix Resurrections are among the films on the list. With the exception of Ryan Reynolds’ Free Guy, nine of the ten films are either MCU films or reboots/continuations of iconic franchises.
