Academy pares down visual effects shortlist

6 January 2010 8:01 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The race for the visual effects Oscar just got a little tighter.

The Academy's visual effects branch announced on Wednesday that the shortlist of 15 movies, released in mid-December, has been whittled down to seven films that remain in the running.

 

"Avatar" heads the alphabetic list, followed by "District 9," "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," "Star Trek," "Terminator Salvation," "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and "2012."

The movies that have fallen out of contention since December are "Angels & Demons," "Coraline," "Disney's A Christmas Carol," "G-Force," "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," "Sherlock Holmes," "Watchmen" and "Where the Wild Things Are."

All members of the visual effects branch will be invited to view 15-minute excerpts from each of the seven films on the new shortlist. Following the screenings, the members will vote to nominate three films for final Oscar consideration.

The 82nd Academy Awards nominations will be announced on Feb. 2. »
