Best Visual Effects

The 15 semi-finalists in the running for the 2010 visual effects Oscar are:

An epic of epic epicness.

  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Clash of the Titans
  • The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
  • Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
  • Hereafter
  • Inception
  • Iron Man 2
  • The Last Airbender
  • Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
  • Prince of Persia: The Sand of Time
  • Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
  • Shutter Island
  • The Sorcerer's Apprentice
  • Tron: Legacy
  • Unstoppable

One of the only awards that celebrate the biggest, the baddest, the meanest and the three dimensional, still the f\x department seems pretty lame this year (Hereafter?).  I'm guessing it's an easy victory for Inception.  However, if a brave academy would ever\could ever acknowledge the utterly delightful invention of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, it would make my world; for my two cents, there was no other film of 2010 that used effects in such a witty, gleeful manner, and isn't that what this category is supposed to embrace- the exuberant possibilities of filmmaking.
