The effects work of ILM has put the Star Trek movie on the shortlist for a Visual Effects Oscar. All the competing films had their ‘bake-off’ last Thursday, where effects clips from each were shown the visual effects professionals who then voted for the final Oscar nominations. Star Trek has already picked up two nominations for visual effects by the VES guild.
