'The Dark Knight', 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' and 'Australia' are among the seven remaining movies to fight for the three spots in 2008 Oscar's visual effects category.

There are 7 movies left in the running for the 81st Academy Awards' visual effects category. On Tuesday, January 6, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that "Australia", "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "The Dark Knight" are still competing for the Oscar consideration.

Joining those three on the shortlist are "Hellboy II: The Golden Army", "Iron Man", "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D" and "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor".
