    I predict the nominees will be:

    Transformers DOTM
    Planet Of The Apes
    Deathly Hallows Part 2
    Hugo
    Sucker Punch

    If DOTM doesn't end up on the list, then I'll be pissed.

    Knowing the Academy though, they'll give the win to Apes.

    Sounds about right. I personally would change Sucker Punch with The Tree of Life and the list will be complete.
    The winner will be one one of the first 3 - TF, HP and Apes. Knowing the academy I think they'll give the award to HP.

    Unfortunately, this will most likely be the case. Especially since Fox is trying to get Andy Serkis nominated for Best Actor (Academy would never go for that). Don't get me worng, Apes was cool, but the effects' realism suffered whenever the apes were running/moving. (I guess WETA had their hands full again. )

    Although, if DOTM doesn't end up in the final five, I'm going to hurt someone. Literally, I'll walk outside and punch some random person. (Sarcasm)

    I love the idea of a movie about giant alien robots winning an Oscar. :borat

    No movie deserves the best visual FX Oscar more than Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Its a scandal that Transformers 2007 did not win, so they have to make up for it now. But they wont, because the Oscars are nothing more than a stupid publicity stunt.

    ^This.

    DOTM's audio work makes me want to upgrade to a better sound system.

    I still think Transformers should have won best visual effects back in 2007. I don't know why they gave it to The Golden Compass.

    because they ultimately try to avoid any michael bay film which is really stupid. The Golden Compass didn't have anything amusing in terms of vfx IMO

    I agree, oscars will never award Michael Bay anything. But, they also think they are special because they don't like to award popular movies period, because they still could have given the award to Pirates of the Caribbean, but alas, it was a popular movie. But the Golden Compass, I never even heard of the movie till I heard it beat out Transformers.

    It would have been nice if TF won an oscar for VFX but it's clear Bay ain't getting one. Regardless though, Transformers will be left in history being known as a big step forward in the special effects world.
    Transformers 3 clearly proved how great these robots can look in action.

    Awesome. Now, let's hope it makes the final 5.

    Captain America was well done I thought. Nothing mindblowing, but turning 6' Chris Evans into a tiny twerp, and pulling it off I thought was well done and seamless.

    I read this morning that DOTM got nominations for best VFX, sound editing, and sound mixing!

    Congrats to Bay and all the talented people who worked on the movie!

    My bold prediction, Hugo will win everything. Why? It's already a critics' darling, so why not just award them everything else?

    Don't get me wrong, I want Dark of the Moon to win, but you gotta consider the mindset the Academy has.

    I will be one very surprised fleshling if DOTM wins any of these. I think it is deserving, but it also should have won for TF and ROTF.

    I bought a new a new home theater receiver that can decode Dolby TrueHD, and last night after setting it up I was watching parts of DOTM, and even though my speaker system is only 5.1, that TrueHD mix is sick.

    Hugo may win many awards but surely not for VFX.
    My prediction: Best movie - The Artist, Best Director - Hugo, Best VFX - Apes or DOTM.

    TF3 will get the sound Oscars and the visual effects Oscar can go either to TF3 or Planet of the Apes.
    The Dolby True HD 7.1 sound on Blu-ray is by far the best sound I've heard so far of any of the Blu-ray movies that I have that has 7.1 sound!
    It kicks Kick Ass ass. Pirates 4 ass! Scarface ass! It kicks everybody's ass!!
    Though the movies I mentioned have DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 sound and not Dolby True HD 7.1, but I don't believe the difference between these two formats is that big...

    Not to burst any bubbles, but either Hugo or Rise Of The Apes will win. At least DOTM was nominated.
