It is true friends, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 has been short listed and is now in the semi-final list for the category Visual Effects!
So far, four out of six Harry Potter movies have been nominated for Oscars in categories like Cinematography, visual effects, costumes and art direction, but has not received any. This time, there are strong chances of making it to the final list and end up winning the Oscar. The final nomination list will be announced on January 25, 2011.
Cinesite, one of the world's leading visual effects company has rendered its expertise in this movie. The effects include Dumbledore's ghost, doe patronous, Voldemort's voice and the list goes on. We have experienced those jaw dropping effects already, so, now its for the jury members of the academy to witness them.
Well, what we can do for now is to keep our fingers crossed and pray for our hero to grab the golden statue.
