If we’re going to look at the Hollywood guilds/societies as a predictor for what will win at the Oscars, then Life of Pi will be the film to beat.  Ang Lee‘s drama won four categories at last night’s Visual Effects Society Awards including Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature Motion Picture; Outstanding Animated Character in a Live Action Feature Motion Picture; Outstanding FX and Simulation Animation in a Live Action Feature Motion Picture; and Outstanding Compositing in a Feature Motion Picture.  Brave also picked up four awards, but that doesn’t seem to be as much of a factor, and the Best Animated Film category is still very much in question with Frankenweenie and Wreck-It Ralph as contenders.  As for television, Game of Thrones was the unsurprising winner as the show also netted four awards.
