15 Films to Compete for Visual Effects Oscar

A scene from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

The eligible films are:
  • “Australia”
  • “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”
  • “Cloverfield”
  • “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”
  • “The Dark Knight”
  • “The Day the Earth Stood Still”
  • “Hancock”
  • “Hellboy II: The Golden Army”
  • “The Incredible Hulk”
  • “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”
  • “Iron Man”
  • “Journey to the Center of the Earth”
  • “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor”
  • “Quantum of Solace”
  • “The Spiderwick Chronicles”
Benjamin Button, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Iron Man...what else? Definitely not The Mummy or Spiderwick. Perhaps Australia? I would love to see Cloverfield get a nomination. Something about that just seems right.

The Academy loves Spielberg, but I don't know if even they can take those monkeys seriously.

I'm sure they can take the aliens seriously, tho!

I think this has to go to Hellboy. Of all the superhero/monster action sequences this summer, I think Del Toro delivered the best.

That still from BEJAMIN BUTTON really looks fantastic. Such a textured composition, cannot wait to see it, but will so on the evening of Christmas Day.
