The Academy has picked fifteen films for the Visual Effects category. Out of the fifteen, ten will be chosen in early January, then five for the final nominations to be announced January 25.
If we're going to predict which films will be included in the final five, we're thinking "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2," "Hugo," "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" (because for some reason, the Academy loves honoring "Transformers" in this category -- big, clashing eye candy!), and the critics-darling "The Tree of Life."
We'll find out January 25th if our Oscar crystal ball is accurate. For now, here are the 15 films vying for nominations (in alphabetical order):
"Captain America: The First Avenger" (Marvel/Paramount) Marvel VFX supervisor: Christopher Townsend
"Cowboys & Aliens" (DreamWorks/Universal) ILM VFX supervisors: Roger Guyett and Eddie Pasquarello
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" (Warner Bros.) VFX supervisor: Tim Burke
"Hugo" (Paramount) VFX supervisor: Rob Legato
"Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol" (Paramount) Digital Domain VFX supervisor: Erik Nash
"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" (Disney) ILM VFX supervisor: Ben Snow

"Rise of the Planet of the Apes" (Fox) Weta VFX supervisor: Joe Letteri
"Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" (Warner Bros.) VFX supervisor: Chas Jarrett
