To me, it is amazing that Christopher Robin was slighted, which had some of Framestore's best work EVER. That was top tier character animation, lighting, fur, composting, everything. Just exceptional and demonstrates how important the presentations for each film is and how strong all the work is this year.

I actually found the Black Panther more bland than any complaints I may have had about unexceptional digidoubles and the virtual camera work surrounding them. It just didn't work for me as a film. I like Wakanda in Infinity War better and felt Black Panther's appearance in Civil War was stronger than anything in Black Panther itself.

Bafta is slightly different to the Oscars but feel sure First Man will get it!ILM hasn't won an Oscar since pirates 2! Would love to see ILM win this

I still have a feeling First Man will win. DNEG has seen this situation before with Ex Machina at the Oscars and they pulled it off. Yes, I know this is Bafta so the voting is different but I would still bet it wins. Plus, Marvel seems to have a propensity to get nominations but no outright wins. If I'm not mistaken they haven't won either and Oscar or a Bafta for vfx.

Why has ILM not acknowledged their work on First Man? They did work on it. Even if it was a single shot, why wouldn't they acknowledge and publicly state so?

I agree with Shane. No Christopher Robin? The BAFTA's seem to have more "artistic integrity", for the lack of a better term, than the Oscars, so Christopher Robin being snubbed for something like Black Panther is :roll: I guess I just missed the last ten years of VFX films that did everything Black Panther did but better...

(Is it obvious that I'm bitter?)

I'm thinking First Man for the BAFTA's.

Black Panther has the best vfx EVER!! That's why it just won the bafta.

Us brits know our shit. No problems here. Calm waters and excellent decisions.

Well, I might have been a little facetious, I certainly don't think it has the best fx overall. But I've no problem with it winning. I love the film and ILM's work on it was great.

Personally I thought it was the weakest of the nominees, c.g rhino, car chase, but some good work! Hopefully ILM can win the Oscar now !! Jon

What a joke! Thank God it wasn't nominated at the Oscars. But i agree that ILM work on the African futuristic city is solid.

Congrats to Craig Hammack and the entire ILM team on the win!

ILM's Wakanda was great in BP. The actors were great. I just didn't care for the film. It falls into the inconsequential MCU films for me along with Dr. Strange(which had some great vfx), Captain America 1, and the Thor films.
