While they did great work I'm not sure they will get the awards for sound. As for visual effects, heck yeah they should win it. Despite what some people think of movie designs they can't deny that ILM put their all into those visuals and they deserve recognition for it.
If DOTM doesn't win best visual effects then I'll know for certain that the Academy is just biased against Micheal Bay. I mean the first one should have won it right off the bat but lost to The Golden Compass. ROTF had terrible story but very superb special effects and still lost that award to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. ILM puts in way more hours of dedication and love in these films then any other special effects team. They deserve this award for these films so maybe third time's a charm.
Some people are like slinkies, not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
