Transformers: DOTM Remains on Oscar FX Shortlist

Last month, it was reported that Transformers: Dark of the Moon was one of 15 films on the list for a chance at the Achievement in Visual Effects Oscar nomination. The Academy's Visual Effects Branch Executive Committee has announced that DOTM has moved on to another round. To win the FX Oscar there is more or less a 4 step process - 1) make it to the list of 15, 2) remain on the list of 10 (chosen by FX committee), 3) make it to final five finalists (chosen by members of FX branch), and 4) winner on Oscar night (chosen by entire Academy). The Visual Effects branch members will have a chance to view 10 minute excerpts from each film on January 19th and vote for the five which will be announced on January 24th, 2012. Transformers 1 made it to the final five but lost on Oscar night while ROTF did not make the finalists list. The five films cut were Cowboys & Aliens, Sherlock Holmes 2, Sucker Punch, Super 8, and Thor.

The complete list:
Captain America: The First Avenger
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Real Steel
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Transformers: Dark of the MoonThe Tree of Life
X-Men: First Class
