The Hobbit, The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers and Skyfall, go for the Oscar Awards for Best Special Effects: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced U.S. ten films vying for an Oscar for best special effects.

A list in which we find most of the blockbusters of the year … and also some other fiasco. The impossible, the only production with possibilities in this category, has been left out.
In the list we find several superhero movies like ‘The Amazing Spider-Man‘ reboot of the series on Marvel’s wall-crawler, the meeting the best action ‘The Avengers‘ or last Christopher Nolan Batman, The Dark Knight Rises‘.

There are also colorful box office duds like ‘John Carter‘ controversial films like Alien prequel ‘Prometheus’, or ‘Cloud Atlas’, the new from the creators of The Matrix.

Completing the list free adaptation of the story “Snow White and the Huntsman ‘, the latest James Bond’ Skyfall ‘, the fantastic journey of Ang Lee’s’ Life of Pi ‘and yet to release’ The Hobbit: A Journey unexpected ‘.

Scholars will see a 10-minute extract from each of the films on 3 January. After the screenings, the members of the visual effects branch will vote to nominate five films to be final candidates to the Oscars. The winner of last year’s Academy Awards was The Invention of Hugo Martin Scorsese.
