Opinions vary when it comes to Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth's Snow White and the Huntsman, but most can agree that the visual effects were sublime. Even the Academy thought the visual were worth nominating as SWATH was nominated for Best Visual Effects alongside Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Ang Lee's Life of Pi, Joss Whedon's The Avengers, and Ridley Scott's Prometheus. Who will win? It's anybody's guess, I'd have to say I'm leaning toward Marvel's The Avengers, just because of the amazing work that was done on The Hulk by Industrial Light and Magic (ILM).

Visual effects companies The Mill and Blue Bolt are making their case for Snow White and the Huntsman with these two marvelous VFX breakdown videos below.





In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power. Now available on DVD and Blu-ray!



Snow White & The Huntsman was directed by Rupert Sanders and stars: Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane, Ray Winstone, Nick Frost, and Bob Hoskins.

Are you [frick]ing kidding me? The CGI was OK at best, most of it was crap.

...In response to the above comments about Kristen Stewart I would prefer Charlize Theron any day of the week even if she would later kick my ass ;)

Cipher - LOL, I was wondering where those comments were going, then I got to the second paragraph payoff.

This movie should not be nominated for anything, literally nothing at all. Kristen Stewart is a horrible actress, she is way to monotone.

Those visual effects don't come near to what Life of Pi and The Hobbit delivered, but after seeing Life of Pi in 3D, I have to go with that.

Put me on the "Kristen Stewart is not hot" list. :-P

Neither the set extensions or the mirror man are why it got the nod. It got it for the Dwarf effect, neither of which are covered. *sigh* You'd think the fx companies would get that.

That mirror man looks like it didn't take much work at all to make, not saying that it didn't get the job done, but it's not by any means impressive

Nothing in this movie comes anywhere close to avengers or pi

I sorry, but TDKR deserved a nom. It didn't have as much CGI as the other categories.
