Oscars VFX Short List Includes ‘Deathly Hallows,’ ‘Tree of Life,’ ‘Hugo’

5389187.jpgA diverse collection of films form the short list for the Best Visual Effects Oscar, which the Academy revealed today:

Captain America: The First Avenger

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2


Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Real Steel

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

The Tree of Life

X-Men: First Class

Members of the Academy’s Visual Effects will vote to whittle the least down to five before the final nominations are announced on January 24, leaving producers barely three weeks to blanket the trades with glossy “for your consideration” ads. We wish them the best of luck. Except for On Stranger Tides. That movie royally sucked.
