Awards show season is fully upon us and with it comes the announcement of this year's Oscar nominees for Best Visual Effects. Among the nominees, top favourites The Creator and Godzilla Minus One are surprisingly low-budget, suggesting that small costs could result in big wins this year. 

A host of newcomers will be taking on VFX industry veterans such as Neil Corbould, who's previously won for blockbusters like Gladiator and Gravity. Thanks to Courbould, The Creator's ingenious VFX puts it in good stead to take home the award. However, out of the 17 individuals who make up the nominees, 13 are completely new to the VFX category, suggesting we could potentially see some fresh faces making history.
