Final Predictions - Best Visual Effects

Alice In Wonderland
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I
Iron Man 2

Should Win/Will Win - Inception 
Should Have Been Nominated - TRON Legacy
Commentary - The Academy made a smart decision this year when it extended this category to five nominees. As our society has entered the digital age, so have movies, and many more of them are using stunning and ground-breaking visual effects. This crop of nominees is pretty good, although the TRON Legacy snub still hurts. It may not have been the best movie of the year, but its effects were top notch. Harry Potter and Alice are probably in the #2 and #3 spots respectively, but this year, thats as high as they are going on this list. Without a doubt, I can predict that Inception will take home the gold. It has seven other nominations, and is the only film of the five to be nominated for best picture. Plus, it definitely had the best effects of any movie this year, so in this category it is a win/win for the Academy.
