Ever wonder what it feels like to not get nominated for an Oscar?
Every year after the nominations are announced, you’re guaranteed to see reaction videos of filmmakers listening to the nominations and celebrating when their name is announced. But what about videos of the artists and filmmakers who didn’t get nominated?
Now we know what that heartbreak looks like thanks to Kevin Baillie, the co-founder of vfx studio Atomic Fiction and production visual effects supervisor on Welcome to Marwen. The film was one of the ten projects shortlisted for the visual effects Academy Award, so Baillie had a 50% chance at being nominated. The film was a key contender too, with a number of industry trades predicting a nomination for the film.
