Apes, Robots And Not Men In Suits Part Of Oscar's Short List For Best VFX
Visual effects play a large part in a lot of films that we have loved and hated this year. From Andy Serkis' mo-cap ape in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to the clutter, clank and do-you-have-any-friggin-idea-what-is-going-on robots in Transformers: Age of Extinction. The Academy released their short list of movies vying for an Oscar in the new year. 

Variety reports... The VFX branch executive committee determined the shortlist.  All members of the branch will be invited to view 10-minute excerpts from each of the shortlisted films on Saturday, Jan. 10.  Following the screenings, the members will vote to nominate five films for final Oscar consideration.

Have a look at the list. Out of these ten films who do you think will make the top five and who should win overall? A lot of people put in a lot of hours making new worlds, bringing creatures to life or sending humankind into the stars. Sure, their work deserves more than just a shiny statue, but as they say, it is nice to be nominated.
