A few months ago, Disney was pushing for Robert Downey Jr. to be considered for an Oscar nomination for his performance in Avengers: Endgame. In fact, both Disney and Marvel felt as if all of their Avengers: Endgame stars could potentially set records this awards season.

Though we didn’t see Robert Downey Jr. up for an Oscar, we do see Avengers: Endgame up for Best Visual Effects alongside The Lion King and Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker.
