No Surprise Here: The Hobbit Makes Shortlist for Visual-Effects Oscar

November 29, 2012 at 3:46 pm by kristin  - 

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences today announced ten films that have made the shortlist for the Visual Effects award for 2012. Naturally The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is among them.

On January 3, members of the Academy’s Visual Effects branch will view 10-minute excerpts from all the films and narrow them down to the final five nominees. The nominations for the 2012 Academy Awards will be announced on January 10.

The Oscars ceremony itself is scheduled for February 24. With luck, those who attend the newly announced event, “The One Expected Party,” will be able to celebrate The Hobbit‘s win in that and other categories!

    It’s good to have recognition for ones efforts, even by a politically motivated academy such as the AMPS. But who needs them for us to know what is obvious! But hey, why not a little extra gold to add to the glory! 🙂
