I think there's an element of that in a lot of awards ceremonies nowadays, rather than being specific to the Oscars.

IMO - at least G.I Joe got deservedly bumped out.

I'd guess Avatar, Star Trek, 2012, District 9 and maybe Harry Potter for the finalists.

CG overuse and the resulting artificiality are only noticeable when you watch an entire movie.

Agreed, but congratulations to all the nominees!

No, it lost to Golden Compass.

Why, I have no idea - but it did.

I would hope that ST gets to the final 3 but even then Avatar is likely to win, damn if it was any other year and ST was nomiated it probably would have walked this award.
