Despite being very favorably reviewed by fans and having 98% and 100% ratings on Rotten Tomatoes both Paddington and Paddington 2 were snubbed by the Academy, receiving zero Oscar nominations. But who cares, right?
They're cute, family friendly movies and don't take themselves too seriously, and I'm sure Paddington isn't sad about being snubbed considering he's a CGI character and therefore has nowhere to store a real life award.
And speaking of CGI- watching these scenes from Paddington 2 with the little digi-bear removed are not only absurdly hilarious at times- they're a primer on how many of these digital effects are created.
And after watching this VFX breakdown video shared by Framestore you'll know more about how practical and CGI effects come together in a modern film.
