2 Academy Award nominations for Rogue One

Those shiping Cassian and Jyn hard would have been quite disappointed that Rogue One has no acting Oscar nominations but the staff at Lucasfilm should be well pleased with their two nods for the Best Visual Effects and Sound Mixing.

The nod for visual effects is especially well deserved as Rogue One was simple breath taking with every set piece being a work of CGI master class.

Step up John Knoll, Mohen Leo, Hal Hickel and Neil Corbould, your nomination is well deserved and must be a treat for Knoll who's pitch to Kathleen Kennedy directly led to the green light for Rogue One.

Those getting the ear of the Academy for Sound Mixing are: David Parker, Christopher Scarabosio and Stuart Wilson.

The Force Awakens was also nominated for the same categories last year (and a couple more!) but did not win.
