    I’m not sure these would qualify as surprise omissions, but off the top of my head:

    “Battle: Los Angeles”
    “Fast Five” (don’t know if it would qualify)
    “The Green Hornet” (again, would it qualify?)
    “Green Lantern”
    “Immortals”
    “Mr. Popper’s Penguins”
    “Zookeeper”

    Most of those at a minimum sound like they might have been eligible

    What about the two Spieberg films? (Tintin/War Horse – the former at least would have seemed likely)

    No “War Horse”? That’s a weird one given the Spielberg worship and the fact that he is a likely nominee this year. In the case of “Tintin,” I’m not sure if animated films qualify for the Visual Effects category. Perhaps someone else can chime in about that.

    Here is my guess on likelihood of being nominated.  I am expecting there to only be 3 nominations as usual but if I’m correct in my thinking they have gone to 5 nominations before on rare occasions.  


    1) “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2″
    2) “Hugo”
    3) “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”
    ———————-
    4) “The Tree of Life”
    5) “Super 8″
    ———————-
    6) “X-Men: First Class” 
    7)“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”
    8) “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”9) “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol”
    ———————-
    10) “Thor”
    11) “Captain America: The First Avenger”
    12) “Real Steel”
    13) “Cowboys & Aliens”
    14) “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”
    15) “Sucker Punch”

    I think the next ten to make the cut will be:
    “Captain America: The First Avenger”
    “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2″
    “Hugo”
    “Real Steel”
    “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”
    “Sucker Punch”
    “Thor”
    “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”
    “The Tree of Life”
    “X-Men: First Class”

    Then the final five:
     “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2″
    “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”
    “Sucker Punch”
    “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”
    “The Tree of Life”

    The Tree of Life’s dinosaurs were the worst effects I’ve seen in a theater in my entire life.

    Someone didn’t see CGI young Jeff Bridges in Tron: Legacy…

    I didn’t think they were that bad in ‘TRON: Legacy’… Or ‘Tree of Life’ for that matter.

    Out of the 15, I’d say ‘X-Men: First Class’ has the worst. They ranged from decent to embarrassing.

    But the interesting thing about The Tree of Life was that there were no digital effects, it was all natural. That’s why the dinosaurs weren’t so good, but they weren’t computer generated.

    I’d say the final five should be-

    Captain America: The First Avenger
    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (Winner)
    Hugo
    Rise of the Planet of the Apes
    Transformers: Dark of the Moon

    I wonder if Scott Farrar and his team can win another Oscar.

    although Transformers viuals gave me a headache, literally. I’d blame Bay’s direction though.
