Transformers Goes 0 For 3 At Oscars

{mosimage} Well, it can't always be good news. A little while ago, astf lost the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects to the Golden Compass. Transformers was something of a favorite in the category, having taken the top prize at the Visual Effects Society award ceremony last week. 

On the bright side, the opening montage featured a bunch of iconic movie characters, creatures, and monsters making their way to the Kodak theater for the ceremony, and several of the movie 'bots made an appearance. Hopefully they were turned away at the velvet rope, as Bonecrusher hates losing. Director Michael Bay was also briefly featured in a montage of Academy members casting their ballots for the awards.

*UPDATE* Transformers lost to Bourne Ultimatum in both the Sound Mixing and Sound Editing categories, so it goes home empty-handed. Discussion (and commiseration) continues in Sentinel Prime's thread.
