The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has narrowed the films for the Visual Effects category for the 83rd Academy Awards down to seven movies, and here's the list in alphabetical order:
Alice in Wonderland
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
Iron Man 2
Scott Pilgrim vs the World
Out of all of these films Tron: Legacy, Inception, Iron Man 2, and Scott Pilgrim are worthy of a nomination. Out of those I think Tron: Legacy or Inception will end up taking home the Oscar. What do you think had the best visual effects of 2010?
From the official Press Release:
All members of the Visual Effects Branch will be invited to view 15-minute excerpts from each of the seven shortlisted films on Thursday, January 20. Following the screenings, the members will vote to nominate five films for final Oscar consideration.
The 83rd Academy Awards nominations will be announced live on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.
