When the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled its Oscar nominations this morning, there were some very familiar names among the honorees.
Joe Letteri, for example. And Tim Burke and Scott Farrar.
These may not be people that appear regularly in the pages of "Us Weekly," but to those who follow the visual effects industry, they're on par with Meryl Streep and George Clooney.
Only one film can win the Oscar for best visual effects, but today, five films were nominated.
