2009 Oscar News – VFX Short List


Yesterday the Academy announced that 15 films have been selected as semifinalists for Achievement in Visual Effects and here they are.

“Angels & Demons”
“Avatar”
“Coraline”
“Disney’s A Christmas Carol”
“District 9”
“G-Force”
“G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”
“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”
“Sherlock Holmes”
“Star Trek”
“Terminator Salvation”
“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”
“2012”
“Watchmen”
“Where the Wild Things Are”

Have seen some of the films and in my opinion the most awesome effects belong to 2012; but there is one that after getting terrible buzz now is getting excellent reviews: Avatar. Some claim that Cameron reinvented sfx (but the story is lousy), so have to watch it to find if is true or not. To read the Academy official announcement go here.
