Why is WB screwing up Gravity's SFX win by pushing WETA and Jackson? I just don't get it. Gravity is the groundbreaking movie of the year. WETA won for their mo'cap already and that's all they do. Besides, didn't they get some award earlier this year for HFR that nobody likes very much? If Gravity is robbed of its deserved win for yet another been-there-done-that mo'cap creature win, that's going to be really awful.
