Don't make the mistake of presuming "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is going to contend for Visual Effects. A "Star Wars" movie hasn't won an Oscar since "The Empire Strikes Back." This year, "War for the Planet of the Apes" probably is in a showdown with "Blade Runner 2049" for the prize. Leading the "Apes" team is Joe Leterri, who has four previous Oscars. He supervised the visual effects on the last two "Apes" movies, too, and got nominations – but no wins.
