Although DC's Aquaman is just not doing badly in any respect in theatres (it is nearing the $1 billion mark), the film's director, James Wan, is mad at The Academy for what he believes to be a an oversight of their nomination course of. The class that he has his gripe with is the VFX shortlist, on which Aquaman was not included, regardless that just about the entire film is painted in CGI. The different motion pictures that obtained nominated embrace: Ant-Man & The WaspAvengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Welcome to Marwen, Ready Player One, Christopher Robin, First Man, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Mary Poppins Returns.

Wan's discontent surfaced on Facebook, when he posted in celebration of the film's launch and the visible results supervisor,Kelvin McIlwain, commented, "it was such an honor to be part of this artistic endeavor and to work with you once more. Cheers!!!!" The director replied with indignance in the direction of the Academy: "Kelvin, you and your division are the unsung heroes of this movie. The indisputable fact that your VFX friends within the Academy aren’t recognizing or appreciating what we/you’ve all contributed to the movie and cinema is a fucking shame."
