Many people complain about the lack of accesibility the academy has with popular conventions...well, look no further to this years Visual Effects Finalist.

Of the 7 finalist for best visual effects, three will go on to receive Academy Award nominations.

(and supplemental box office information)

I think that the effect on casino royale were amazing, especially the car crash.
However on dead man's chest they were good but the big octopus monster thing wasnt very convincing.
Poseidon was awesome though!

Even though it didn't have the best effects, I hope Casino Royale gets nominated, as it was a far better film than the rest of the finalists.
