CAPTAIN AMERICA And X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Make Oscar VFX Short List; THOR Snubbed
The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has reached a decision on the ten films they'll have to narrow down to five for the visual effects Oscar nomination, but shockingly THOR hasn't made the cut!
When the lengthy list of candidates for the visual effects Oscar was released last month, Green Lantern was noted for being the only 2011 comic book movie not on the list. Now that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has whittled that down to the following short list, it's Marvel Studios' THOR which has been snubbed - a somewhat peculiar decision after the amount of praise the movie received for its stunning portrayal of Asgard and the Rainbow Bridge.
Captain America: The First Avenger
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
The Tree of Life
X-Men: First Class
According to Variety, the members of the visual-effects branch will view 10-minute excerpts from each of the 10 films listed above and will then nominate five films for final Oscar consideration. Which do you think should make the cut?
