Captain America
Ten films are now in the running for a Visual Effects Oscar nomination. Members of the Academy Visual Effects Branch will vote for the final five VFX nominees after viewing ten-minute excerpts from each of the shortlisted films at the Thursday, January 19 "Bakeoff." "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" beating out "Thor" and "Super 8" are the biggest upsets in the list of ten.

The films are listed below in alphabetical order:

    "Captain America: The First Avenger"
    "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2"
    "Hugo"
    "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol"
    "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"
    "Real Steel"
    "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"
    "Transformers: Dark of the Moon"
    "The Tree of Life"
    "X-Men: First Class"

Nominations will be announced on Tuesday, January 24 and the Academy Awards will be presented on Sunday, February 26. My best guess as to the final five are: "Harry Potter," "Hugo," "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," "Transformers" and "The Tree of Life."
