'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". All these seven movies will be cut down into only three by members of the Academy's Visual Effects Branch after the 15-minute screenings of each movie held on Thursday, January 15.

The 81st Academy Awards will announce its selections of nominees at Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Thursday, January 22, 2009 at 5:38 A.M.
