    Life of Pi deserves to win. The effects in that movie were incredible.

    Definantly “The Avengers” will be one for sure, i believe the other four will be “Life Of Pi”, “The Hobbit”, “Skyfall” and either “Prometheus” or “Cloud Atlas”.

    I have a feeling the Hobbit will win, followed closely by Cloud Atlas. I don’t know anything about the cinematography of Prometheus to make a judgement on that.
