Best effects of the year?

Variety (via Hyperspace) reports that Casino Royale, Eragon, Night at the Museum, X-Men: The Last Stand, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Poseidon and Superman Returns are finalists for the three visual effects Oscar nominee spots. ILM worked on Pirates, Posidon, and Eragon.

As previously reported, ROTS has a shot at three Oscars. An interesting post on a USA Today blog discusses the odds and offers fans a opportunity to chime in.
