I wasn't sure how the Academy was going to do the Visual Effects "bake-off" this year, since the nominees has been bumped up from 3 to 5, finally. I actually expected them to not do the shortlist of 7 finalists, and just choose 5 from the previous list of 15, but that's not how things have gone down. Here are the finalists for this year's Best Visual Effects category. 5 films will be chosen. Inception will win...I just hope Scott Pilgrim is one of the five, personally.
ALICE IN WONDERLAND
HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART 1
IRON MAN 2
SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD
