Best Visual Effects Predictions

The Midnight Sky +275

Eugenia Leal: If there’s going to be an upset on Sunday, it will be with The Midnight Sky for Best Visual Effects.

This movie starring George Clooney illustrates the complex exploration of space, as scientists go off in search of a habitable planet while their Earth is imploding. From Earth, to space, Jupiter and beyond, The Midnight Sky captures gorgeous visual effects only seen in movies like the Martian and Interstellar. In 2015, Interstellar won this award for taking their audience through an incredible voyage through space and time.

The Midnight Sky achieved this with breathtaking scenes and realism throughout the film. Compared to your classic action movie like Tenet (-560), and Mulan (+1700), The Midnight Sky is different from the rest because it takes on the task of illustrating a journey through space that is both realistic and captivating.

As a +275 underdog, a $100 bet would net a $275 profit.
