Fans Are Roasting Marvel for Thor: Love and Thunder after they submitted an Oscar Campaign for Best Picture and some other major awards. This was mostly because fans were shocked to know that Marvel considers Thor: Love and Thunder to be their Best Picture at the Oscars. This was totally unbelievable.
Some tweets were seen by fans calling it a “joke” for Marvel to actually consider Thor: Love and Thunder to be one of their best pictures nominated at Oscar. The nomination for Best VFX Academy Award was given to Thor which received a lot of criticism. One of the reasons why this happened is because Thor as a movie had poor visual effects. Fans were seen poking fun at one scene in particular, in which Axl telepathically communicates with Thor and is shown as a glowing, floating head.
Ever since its release, it had gained immense criticism for low-grade visuals so Marvel literally decided to alter that scene in particular for the movie’s Disney+ release. But the worst happened when fans disliked the revised version even more. Fans believe it to be a weaker MCU film and a significant step down from its predecessor, 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok. Along with Thor: Love and Thunder, Disney also submitted other major awards like Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best VFX.
According to the official “For Your Consideration” site, Disney is campaigning for all three 2022 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to be nominated for Best Picture.

Along with Thor: Love and Thunder, Disney also submitted other major awards like Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best VFX. Other major Marvel movies like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is also seen competing in the Awards race. The former received mixed reviews from the audience while the director Sam Raimi was immensely praised for his visual presentation.
Doctor Strange also went forward leaving behind The Batman movie to win the Best Movie Award of 2022 at the People Choice Awards. Scarlet Witch took home awards for Female Movie Star and Action Movie Star. Even Wakanda Forever has been praised by critics and fans and is competing well with other Marvel movies.
With the year coming to an end, Wakanda Forever has proudly become the first MCU movie at the box office to remain at the top of the domestic box office charts for five weeks in a row. It has beaten the records of Black Panther and has also grossed $409 million at the domestic box office.
