I agree 100% with this list. The 10 best pic nominees will definitely be from this group.

I'd like to see Andy Serkis get a special Oscar one of these years. I don't know if next year is the right year, although I don't expect that Gollum's part in The Hobbit will demand a nomination, but that may be something the Academy can do that may attract younger viewers and be justifiable. Mocap is here to stay and nobody has done more in front of the camera with mocap to advance the art than Serkis.
They have the visual effects people to award for this. Not the actors.

You ever wonder what would happen if there was some sort of massive strike in Hollywood by producers and distributors in say, the first week of March, and no movies were released the rest of the year? Just imagine if the Academy had to pick SOLELY from movies released from January to February?


Best Picture - Tyler Perry's Good Deeds

Best Actor - Nicolas Cage, Ghost Rider: SOV

Best Actress - Rachel McAdams, The Vow

Best Supporting Actor - Michael Pare, Gone

Best Supporting Actress - Queen Latifah, Joyful Noise

Best Director - McG, This Means War

Best Special Effects - Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

Best Original Score - Red Tails

Best Original Screenplay - Contraband

I note the sarcasm, but January and February have been pretty strong this year.

In a more serious vein:

Best Art Direction - The Woman in Black

Nic Cage should get a permanent Oscar for more entertaining performer. Every year, we take 15 minutes to give Nic his Oscar and watch his latest romp of Noveau Shamanic acting.

And I'm not even kidding.

Ok, seriously, never will that happen, but I sure think it could get some nods in categorys "Best Visual Effects" and "Best Sound Mixing".

Also "Prometheus" could surprise us all, don t you think? Sure, nothing for "Best Picture", but maybe "Best Directing" and "Best Visual Effects".

I really hope "Django Unchained" gets some high-class nominations, esspacially "Acting Oscars".
Django may get it for Leo (in pursuit of his first Oscar), Waltz and Foxx (to prove that they are not one hit wonders), but that's probably it. Kerry Washington would be a real longshot based on what I have heard about her role in the screenplay. Leo would probably win as he may be due.

There is big chance that both Hobbit and TDKR will not score nominations in ''the big 8'' but I'm more than sure that they will score multiple tech nominations.

The Hobbit:
LOCKS: Art Direction, Makeup, Visual Effects
VERY, VERY POSSIBLE: Score, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Costumes, Song
MUST BE DAMN AMAZING TO GET: Film Editing, Cinematography

TDKR:
LOCKS: Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects
VERY, VERY POSSIBLE: Cinematography, Art Direction
MUST BE DAMN AMAZING TO GET: Score, Makeup, Film Editing

Why does no one count up "The Avengers" for "Best Visual Effects"?

OK, after that new trailer, the Avengers is now my hard #3 for best visual effects nomination. It's obvious that it is a combination between Iron Man, Hulk and Transformers on the count of the visual effects.

With an ILM/WETA team-up, an invading alien army (complete with giant "leviathan"), and 2 central characters that are CGI half the time, I'd be shocked if Avengers DIDN'T get in for VFX.

Well lets hope there isn't a sequel to Hugo coming out this year! If not, ILM and Weta should be fine.

Don't forget though WETA's slipping back into it's old pair of shoes in the form of in The Hobbit, which will be well and truly in contention. In fact I believe VFX was won by each LOTR film.

Oh, and I wouldn't be counting out The Dark Knight Rises. It is a lock for a nomination but I think it might have a shot at winning too.

You forgot to account for the technology it took to paint that outfit onto Scarlet Johanssen.

"The Dark Knight Rises" won t be as effect heavy as "The Avengers". Therefore I m not sure if it gets an nomination for "Best Visual Effects". I think TDKR will get a nomination for Cinematography.

No.

He gave up details on a key scene in The Dark Knight Rises: “There’s an emotional scene coming up in the next Batman, which I am obviously, absolutely sworn to secrecy about… They would kill me. Well, I’d do the press junket and then they’d kill me.” He said, “Watching Michael Caine work, as Alfred, was a great lesson for me. Just focus, concentration. He has this emotional scene. I’m kidding you not. It was tears and the whole thing. And it’s ‘Take 1.’ (Oldman snaps his fingers) He got it. ‘Take 2′ (snaps his fingers again), Got it. Take 3 (snaps his fingers) Got it. He’s just on the money. Every single time. It’s just extraordinary… You get inspired by it.” He added that Caine “loves cricket. He loves soccer. So, he comes to the set and (he) wants to get it done. He doesn’t **** around because he wants to get back to cricket.” He even gave a little Caine impersonation, “I’ve got to get back.”
