Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Visual Effects

The competition: Gravity (Tim Webber, Chris Lawrence, Dave Shirk and Neil Corbould), The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (Joe Letteri, Eric Saindon, David Clayton and R. Christopher White), Iron Man 3 (Christopher Townsend, Guy Williams, Erik Nash and Dan Sudick), The Lone Ranger (Tim Alexander, Gary Brozenich, Edson Williams and John Frazier), Star Trek Into Darkness (Roger Guyett, Patrick Tubach, Ben Grossmann and Burt Dalton)

Previous winners: Life of Pi, Hugo, Inception, Avatar, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Golden Compass
My winner: Gravity
The facts: This award went to all three “Lord of the Rings” films but didn’t go to the first “Hobbit” last year. The first installments of “Iron Man” and “Star Trek” also didn’t win the gold. When there has been a frontrunner in multiple technical categories, that film usually wins this award.

Who should win: “Gravity”
Who will win: It’s insanity to predict anything other than Gravity.
