  1. I can see why the academy decided on the other nominations – except for: Captain America. That movie had the most horrible CGI the last year. Terrible! You could tell when actors were standing in front of a greenscreen. Embarrassing for a 150 million dollar movie.
    Glad they left Thor out of the game. The Finale was Asylum-SFX-quality.

    My guess is: It will be a tie between “Real Steel”, “Apes”, “Potter”, “Tree of Life” and “Hugo”.

    As much as I enjoyed FIRST CLASS. Those movies had the better SFX (due to more time in post production).
