Academy's 2007 VFX Oscar Long List

2007oscarsThumbsDown.jpgBoooOoOoOooo!!! Academy you get a Thumbs Down.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced its long
list of 15 contenders.

WTF is Beowulf and Ratatouille doing in this category? Really. The Bourne Ultimatum? Evan Almighty, Really?



What's the biggest omission? Disney's ENCHANTED.

I'm rooting for Sunshine, that movie kicked a whole lot of ass in so many ways. MPC and their VFX were fantastic, go Sunshine!

The full list consists of:

* BEOWULF
* THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM
* EVAN ALMIGHTY
* THE GOLDEN COMPASS
* HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX
* I AM LEGEND
* LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD
* NATIONAL TREASURE: BOOK OF SECRETS
* PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END
* RATATOUILLE
* SPIDER-MAN 3
* SUNSHINE
* 300
* TRANSFORMERS
* THE WATER HORSE

The steering committee will next meet Jan. 3, 2008, to whittle the
list down to the magnificent seven. The entire branch will then meet
for the annual bakeoff on Jan. 16 to select the three nominees.

Hey so you see that Cloverfield 'Grab This' button in the post below, click on it, if I get enough grabs I could win a Cloverfield gift pack, what better way to celebrate the holidays? Ohh and check out the clip, very cool, but do the 'Grab This' first. :)
