Marvel Studios Receives Three Oscar Nominations!
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLIDER and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY were both nominated for Best Visual Effects, while GUARDIANS scored a second nomination for Best Makeup & Hairstyling. These are not big awards, but still, it's exciting to see both GUARDIANS and CAPTAIN AMERICA make the visual effects category!
It's also worth pointing out that GUARDIANS has received a lot of praise over recent weeks. The movie recently received a Writers Guild nomination for Adapted Screenplay, which ended up surprising everyone. The movie has also received a nomination from the Costume Designer Guild in the Excellence in Fantasy Film category.
All I know is, it's a dang good time to be a comic book fan!
