Oh, and one more thing – this is the shortlist for Best Visual Effects. Usually they just release a shortlist of ten films. This year, they released a shortlist of 20 films and then later this month, they’ll narrow it down to ten.

By far the biggest surprise on this list is Bridge Of Spies, while the most surprising omission is probably Pan.
