This makes absolutely no sence what so ever. You aknowledge that the movie deserves to win this award. Which has nothing to do with the story, plot, or even MB directly, but then you say this..

.. But still hope it loses?? Cause you think it will embarass Micheal Bay? What about the visuals department that worked as hard as they did to get the best visuals possible? They didn't direct the movie. Why should they be punished? So I guess all the other movies that don't win should be embarrased as well?
NOt winning isn't going to embaress anyone.

So a franchise based on a childrens cartoon is off limits to kids working in it (Not that there were kids in any of the TF movies) ... :lol: Gotta love the irony in that. Movie hater cease to amaze me with their logic sometimes.


like i said in my previous reply. it takes more than visual effects to win this award. visual effects should compliment a great story,compliment greats cast of actors. compliment great spoken dialogue. Visual effects shouldn't stand out like a sore thumb in the mist of a garbage dump.

regarding your last paragraph. I hate "the all ages" TF cartoons/TF Movie themes hasbro tries so hard to cram into one tiny box. either do a barney the dinosaur style TF movie or a adult themed terminator salvation movie. PLEASE DON'T TRY TO CRAM BOTH BARNY THE DINOSAUR & TEMINATOR SALVATION IN ONE MOVIE CALLED THE TF MOVIE VERSE.

This is why I'm happy beyond measure that hasbro is doing a rescue bots toddler friendly cartoon series & toy line. WHY? Because this means TF prime's cartoon series & toy line can be geared towards a teenager/adult viewers/buyers. cuz the toddlers are getting what they need in rescue bots.

Recently we have reported that Transformers Dark Of The Moon has been shortlisted as the final 15 films for this year Oscar's Best Visual Effect award.

Now, Transformers DOTM is still in the running for this awards as The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has just released the list of 10 films for nominations in the visual effects category at the upcoming Academy Awards.

Members of the visual effects group can screen 10-minute excerpts of the shortlisted film on Thursday, Jan. 19, after which point they will vote to nominate five selections for Oscar night consideration.

Great news to hear, but I'm not getting my hopes up.
I doubt it'll even make it past this list and to the show, itself.
It deserves recognition, but I doubt it'll get what it deserves.
I think Rise will nab it because Caesar is so realistic. (Serkis deserves a nod for best actor. Without him, it wouldn't have worked.)

one of the other movies got beat by the golden compass so yeah, while it deserves it i don't hold out much hope. if the quality of effects in a transformers movie can lose to lame coca cola level designs, it might not stand a chance.

You have no idea how wrong you are. Watch the film, then come talk about it. You won't watch it, though. You're not in to movies that have a legitimate and profound message.
