January 04, 2012


ComingSoon.net reports that Captain America: The First Avenger, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and X-Men: First Class are still in the race for the Visual Effects Oscar. They are facing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2, Hugo, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Real Steel, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Tree of Life.

ll members of the Visual Effects Branch will be invited to view 10-minute excerpts from each of the 10 shortlisted films on Thursday, January 19. Following the screenings, the members will vote to nominate five films for final Oscar consideration.
The 84th Academy Awards nominations will be announced live on Tuesday, January 24, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2011 will be presented on Sunday, February 26, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland CenterĀ®, and televised live by the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.

I'd like to know why THOR ain't on this list?! Nevertheless the Cap deserves this anyway. They sure did a great job with puny Steve Rogers!

Those were some great effects for the pre-serum Steve. The other effects were cool too. It deserves the nomination, at the very least.

I just hope some film we like actually wins. Cap is definitely a good choice but I suppose even the X-Men film would be like a victory in our book. That film seemed to be liked for the most part on these forums I believe. I think it was like being 'pleasantly surprised'. We expected it to suck & it didn't. I think the general audience enjoyed it too. Sure, it'd be better for Cap to win but I suppose if anything in this genre wins, it's OK with me.
