Harry Potter - Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Up For Visual Effects Oscar?

Picture:

'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World' is among seven films in contention for an Oscar nomination for Best Visual Effects.

The geeky comedy - about a young man (Michael Cera) who must fight off the seven evil ex-partners of a girl he has fallen in love with - has made the final long-list for the category alongside 'Alice in Wonderland', 'Inception' and 'Tron: Legacy'.

The list still has to be put down to five nominations, but the seven will be viewed by members of the Academy's visual effects branch on January 20 ahead of the final shortlist announcement on January 25.

The other films in the list include 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows', Clint Eastwood's 'Hereafter' and 'Iron Man 2', according to The Hollywood Reporter.

'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World' - which was directed by Edgar Wright and saw star turns from Cera, Kieran Culkin and Jason Schwartzman - was well received by critics upon its release in August 2010, and has made $47.5 million worldwide.
