Marvel is getting some recognition from the Oscars this year. The superhero films up for an award are Guardians of the Galaxy for Make-up and Visual Effects, and as well as both Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 20th Century Fox owned Marvel property X-Men: Days of Future Past for Visual Effects.

Enormous congrats to our @Guardians Visual Effects & Makeup crews on their Oscar nominations!
