AFT Awards: Best Visual Effects

This is the sixteenth category of the 2nd Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in alphabetical order.

The winner:
Iron Man (John Nelson, Ben Snow, Daniel Sudick & Shane Mahan) looked super-cool and managed to overcome comic book movies’ tendencies to look fake and, well…cartoonish.

Other nominees:
Cloverfield (Kevin Blank, Michael Ellis & Eric Leven)
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (Eric Barba, Steve Preeg, Burt Dalton, Craig Barron)
The Dark Knight (Nick Davis, Chris Corbould, Timothy Webber & Paul J. Franklin)
Wanted (Stefen Fangmeier, Jon Farhat, Boris Lutsyuk & Craig Lyn)
