Half Of Oscar's VFX Nominations Are S3D Films...

This year's crop of nominations for best visual effects from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has 3D very well represented. In fact half of the nods have been given to S3D movies!

Here is the list of nominations for Oscar in VFX:

- CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (3D)
- HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS – PART 2 (3D)
- HUGO (3D)
- PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES (3D)
- TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON (3D)
- MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL
- REAL STEEL
- RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
- THE TREE OF LIFE
- X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

Academy members in VFX will be able to watch 10 minute clips of all these movies on January 19 where they will select the final five movies to compete for the actual Oscar. These five final nominations will be announced on January 24 for the big Oscar show on February 26, which is a big day in itself as it's yours truly's birthday. :-)

Could we have an all 3D final for VFX Oscar? It's possible of course, but PLANET OF THE APES, REAL STEEL and X-MEN look pretty darn good.

So which one do you think will win? For me, it's TRANSFORMERS. Let's face it, the whole movie is one big Michael Bay dissertation on effects. And for what it is, it doesn't get much better. Some of those 3D scenes had my mouth agape!
