Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature Motion Picture
Captain America: The First Avenger
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
There's a lot of good nomination this year such as Captain America, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean 4, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Out of all of these I think that Planet of the Apes might take home the top prize, those apes were incredibly freaky looking. Weta did an amazing job with this movie, and out of all the other nominations this was the movie I was most impressed by. What are your thoughts? What movie did you think have the best visual effect in 2011?
Here's the full press release with all of the nominations:
"The standard of the creative work that is being considered this year is unbelievably high across all categories," said Jeffrey A. Okun, Chair of the Visual Effects Society. "The judges faced a huge challenge because all of the work was so far above the norm. We're honored to have the opportunity to focus the spotlight on the outstanding work that has contributed to some of the highest grossing films and broadcast projects of all time."

You've no doubt discovered The Gregory Brothers' "Auto-Tune the News" YouTube series. In August, their 'Bed Intruder' song became a viral internet sensation -- with the help of Antoine Dodson's "lyrics." At the Bet Hip-Hop Awards 2010 (Tue., 8Pm Et on Bet), Dodson and Michael Gregory performed a live version of the hit.
"Weeelll, he's climbing in your window, he's snatching your people up, trying to rape us so y'all need to hide your kids, hide your wife, hide your kids, hide your wife!" sang Dodson.
Gregory took it from there. Audience members added a bit of choreography. But Dodson and his sister won't have to worry about a Lincoln Park rapist anymore. With the earnings the song has made on iTunes, Dodson bought his family a house -- away from the projects.

This year there is even more competition with some really interesting content now being released on the web rather than through more traditional media routes. Two of my favourites from this year’s nominee list are the excellent Interview Project which is presented by davidlynch.com and the slightly flawed but thoroughly enjoyable Angel of Death, created by Ed Brubaker and starring Zoe Bell, which also received a DVD release last year.
The awards ceremony takes place on April 11th 2010 and the full list of nominees is listed below with handy links
Adapted by Sherman Sergel and based on the Emmy award-winning television movie by Reginald Rose, Twelve Angry Women is the compelling drama of a 19-year-old boy who has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It appears to be an open-and-shut case until one of the jurors
