by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Academy has announced the ten films that could score that coveted Best Visual Effects Oscar and it is a competitive field this year.

So, who made the cut? 

Between superhero movies, sci-fi flicks and fairy tales come to life, visual effects have pushed the envelope (get it?) in 2014. 

Click through and discover the 10 films that could score a Best Visual Effects Oscar. 

1. Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy
James Gunn literally created worlds that don't exist in Guardians of the Galaxy. He and his team should be a lock for a nod.

2. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
We're not so convinced that The Hobbit's closing chapter will get a nod. It is a monumental task, simply creating that final battle, but this field is so crowded this year.

3. X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Men: Days of Future Past
Bryan Singer and his team certainly deserve consideration -- and we think a nod -- for their work on X-Men: Days of Future Past.

4. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Just the scene where S.H.I.E.L.D. came under attack alone should be worth an Oscar nod.

5. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is our favorite to win, actually, just for its ability to do mo-cap for those apes on location.

6. Godzilla

Godzilla could easily score a nod -- that thing was a massive undertaking.
