Fifteen movies have been “short-listed” for the best special FX Oscar, and I’m sure you’re dying to know what 15 they are. Here’s a hint: The 15 of the 16 live-action movies with a lot of special effects this year (sorry, Twilight: Eclipse). How easy is it to get on the Oscar shortlist? The Last Airbender and Clash of the Titans made the list, and I couldn’t really tell you how good their special effects were because I couldn’t see through the shitty 3D conversion jobs.

  • Alice in Wonderland

  • The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

  • Clash of the Titans

  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

  • Hereafter

  • Tron: Legacy

  • Iron Man 2

  • The Last Airbender

  • Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

  • Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

  • Scott Pilgrim vs the World

  • Shutter Island

  • Inception

  • Unstoppable
