Out of the nine categories, Marvel movies have been able to make their spot in the seven categories which is quite impressive and is the reason why people are backing these two movies this time.

Black Panther movie which has been directed by Ryan Coogler has been in the shortlists of four Academy Awards including Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Score, and Visual Effects. The movie as we all know came as a surprise as no one predicted the kind of success this movie had at the box-office and also in the awards section.

On the other side, Avengers: Infinity War has been a part of two shortlists and those two are Original Score and Visual Effects. The movie as we all know that was all about visual effects and amazing fight sequences. The incoming of Thanos in the Infinity War movie has simply set the stage on fire.

“I think there are a lot of amazing artists that helped to make that movie, and it would be wonderful if they could be recognized,” Feige said. “Almost everyone involved in that movie, bringing that movie together, is great, and it would be wonderful to see if they’re recognized.
