Oscar Nominees: Best Visual Effects

My predictions: 3/5
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, Hereafter, Inception, Iron Man 2

Well, having to choose five nominees from a pool of seven isn’t always as easy as it seems. I’m genuinely surprised that “Tron: Legacy” didn’t place, especially considering its Best Sound Editing mention, and less shocked by the saddening omission of “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” HP7 did have some pretty good effects, and “Hereafter” had that impressive natural disaster opening sequence. Though many didn’t like it, “Alice in Wonderland” was also strong, and it’s hard to argue against the awesomeness of both “Inception” and “Iron Man 2.” Who could win? One would hope “Inception,” but who knows?

My current bet to win: “Inception”
