The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which last month narrowed down the Best Visual Effects category to 15 semifinalists, has announced the seven films that remain in the running for a nomination. They are: Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Hereafter, Inception, Iron Man 2, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and Tron: Legacy. That means The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Clash of the Titans, The Last Airbender, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Shutter Island, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and Unstoppable are now officially out of the competition.
Five of the remaining seven contenders will end up scoring an Oscar nomination later this month. Which two won’t end up making the cut? My guesses are Hereafter and Iron Man. How about you?
