Fifteen features have made the semi-finals for the Visual Effects Oscar. In early January, the visual effects branch executive committee members (who selected the semifinalists) will trim the list to seven. At the VFX bakeoff on January 20, the VFX teams screen 15-minute show-reels that show how they achieved their effects. Then the members will vote on the final five nominated films for Oscar consideration. The 83rd Academy Awards nominations will be announced live on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, at 5:30 a.m. PT.

The films listed in alphabetical order below are what you would expect:

For me: Scott Pilgrim, Inception, Alice in Wonderland, Tron:Legacy and Harry Potter.
But, yeah, Where the hell is enter the void


Fingers crossed for Scott Pilgrim. I will be ecstatic if it gets a nomination.


Without no doubt Iron Man 2 had this years best visual effects.


I want Scott Pilgrim to win, the only live action film to translate that hectic Manga style successfully to live action. A wonderful job from Double Negative.


where the hell is enter the void ?


I kind of want Scott Pilgrim to win.


Sam–I think James lynch meant avatar last airbender


Oh I just read that they will be nominating FIVE this year.

So difficult keeping track how many films they will nominate in their categories…


Inception, Scott Pilgrim VS The World, Tron: Legacy.

Fingers crossed.


From Chile, in South America, I can say that not seen all that movies in my country, but, I think the best until now is INCEPTION.


Eh, won last year.
