The Jungle Book dominates Visual Effects Awards

With another big win under its belt, there’s no doubt now that The Jungle Book is poised for Oscar gold in the Best Visual Effects category.

The Jon Favreau picture, which features a stellar cast including Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johansson and Christopher Walken, nabbed five wins at the 2017 Visual Effects Society Awards yesterday (Tuesday, Feb. 8). Among its victories was the most coveted award of the celebration: Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature.

Other films that received recognition were Kubo and the Two Strings, Finding Dory, Doctor Strange, Moana and Deepwater Horizon.

On the TV side, Game of Thrones matched The Jungle Book‘s tally with five triumphs.

The 15th annual ceremony was hosted by comedian Patton Oswalt at the Beverly Hilton in California.
