VES nominations!

I am shocked... SHOCKED to discover that Avatar leads the field with eleven nominations from the Visual Effects Society. Rather than post the full nominee list, I'll just refer you to THR.

The most important of their many categories is Best Visual Effects in a Visual Effects Driven Feature Motion Picture, for which the nominees are:
District 9
Star Trek
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

The safe money is on the Sci-Fi Three (Avatar, District 9, and Star Trek) to earn Oscar nods. I'd be happy with that. It'd be so awesome if, for a second consecutive year, all three nominees were actually good movies, but watch out for 2012! It's picked up three VES nods of its own, and poses the biggest threat to spoil either Star Trek or District 9's day.
