I think there may be some validity to that. I havent seen it, so I can't judge, but the academy is known for awarding oscars to movies and actors simply because of popularity in some circles, crossed with prepackaged and bought media campaigns.


..amen...that is exactly what I ment

I have to agree with you Gabe. Putting War of the Worlds before Sith in the VFX department is a joke, and aside from the big ape himself, the CGI effects in King Kong weren't that special.

As usual the awards are little more than light entertainment and certainly shouldn't be taken that seriously.

Na, I think the visual effects are much more convincing in War of the Worlds. Revenge of the Sith (and all the Star Wars prequels) are way too clean and pretty. It's much more difficult to make visual effects look realistic in the real world, and therefore I'd have to pick WOTW. I think King Kong suffers from the same problem - it looks way too clean, almost like a painting half the time. Give me gritty realism any day!

To say that it is nominated solely because it is centered on being gay is a bit silly.  Many homosexual movies have been well received by critics, but have found no room at the Oscar's.  I really don't think that Brokeback Mountain is really a "breakthrough movie".  Many of these themese have been covered before, just in movies that many people never see.

I'd rather think that it was nominated because it was a good movie.

Actually, I'm OK with WotW being nominated, it's Narnia. People accuse the Prequels of looking cartoony, but Narnia was really far more cartoony to me, at least from what I saw. It's moot anyway, because we all know Kong's gonna get the prize. I really think it was more of an FU to Lucas form the Academy for continuing to not use the unions. I'd also say that the one award Star Wars really diserved was score. William's score there was better than either of the two he's nominated for.

That's what I was trying to say. I have yet to see the film and I'll probably catch it on DVD when it comes out, but most critics were saying it was great, and it must be great to be nominated for an Academy Award.

That said, anyone want to put a prediction down for who you want to win? My predictions are marked with a *

I think George Clooney is going to win best supporting actor just to p**s off Fox News and the far right off.

I think Kong should get it purely based on the fact that the category is for Acheivement in Visual Effects. ILM have done this before in Episodes 1 and 2. Episode 3 is jsut on a grander scale. War of the Worlds FX were really effective but hardly ground breaking. Where Knog gets it for me is in the acheiving and taking to the next level, the motion capture and animation work done by WETA. Yes, it too could be argued that they are merely doing a 'Gollum' and just doing it on a grander scale with Kong but the subtlety in the work and the performance from Andy Serkis all go to serve the character and film flawlessly in my opinion. THAT is the achievement that I think needs recognizing. I do agree though that some other non-Kong FX (the stampede and Jamie Bell hovering over the crumbling cliff) were left wanting. I'm sure they were the best they could do at the time but it does look as if all effort went into Kong and they  just ran out of time for all the other stuff and had to sign off them to deliver the reels. Maybe they'll be tweaked for the DVD.

"king KOng" should win!  The problem with "Star Wars" is that George has too maney things going on in the background on all of newest "Star Wars Movies" the actors get lost because "MR Lucas" makes all the scenes too busy with special effects.
