10 Finalists Announced for Visual Effects Oscar

Dawn-of-the-Planet-of-the-Apes-Kingdom

 

The ten finalists for the Visual F/X Oscar have been announced.  The list will be winnowed down to five by the time nominations are announced on January 17, 2015.  It’s surreal to start talking about Oscars when there really hasn’t been anything this year to laud.

Here are your ten finalists:

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Godzilla
Guardians of the Galaxy
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Interstellar
Maleficent
Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
Transformers: Age of Extinction
X-Men: Days of Future Past

To me, there’s no contest here.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes took motion capture to entirely new level.  What Andy Serkis and the other apes did was nothing short of revolutionary.  I’d love to see The Hobbit get some kind of recognition, but the Academy dismissed it after the first film.

    1. While that would be awesome, and there is certainly nothing really to do backflips over to contest that this year, but that would require the Academy to be cool….they cannot be cool. It would be like anti-matter and matter making out in the back of a Taurus. Nothing good would come of it. WORLDS ENDING MAAAAN!!!
