Here are the 10 movies that will by vying for Visual Effects Oscar nominations
As November comes to a close, the Oscar talk begins to truly heat up. One of the first coming up is the Academy Awards for Visual Effects. The Hollywood Reporter listed the ten movies that will be in contention for the golden statue when the ceremony airs on February 24, 2013.
Those films are:
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY
LIFE OF PI
MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS
SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN
Of those titles we can expect five or less to make the final cut. This is a pretty substantial list, but I would think that THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and CLOUD ATLAS would be the first ones knocked off. Then I would lose SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN and maybe JOHN CARTER. SKYFALL would be the other I would remove which leaves you with the truly best examples of visual effects this year. While I have not seen THE HOBBIT yet, there is no doubt the effects are better than they were in THE LORD OF THE RINGS which would warrant an automatic nomination.
What do you think of the list. Anything left off that you feel should be here?
