    "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End"

    "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" drew a leading seven nominations for the sixth annual Visual Effects Society Awards. "Transformers," another Industrial Light + Magic-led project, followed with five nominations.

    Not far behind the autobots were five films that secured four nominations apiece: "I Am Legend," "Spider-Man 3," "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," "Ratatouille" and "Surf's Up."

    Of the titles that received four or more VES nominations, three of them -- "Pirates," "Transformers" and "Legend" -- also were named to the Academy' visual effects category short list released Friday. The three also are nominees in VES' top category of visual effects in a visual effects-driven film.
    The "Pirates" sequel is nominated for outstanding visual effects in a visual effects-driven film, single visual effect of the year, created environment in a live-action film, compositing in a film (two nominations recognizing different individuals), models and miniatures in a film and animated character in a live-action film.

    The previous "Pirates" film, "Dead Man's Chest" won all six categories last year as well as the Oscar.
    The nominees for the 6th Annual VES Awards are:

    'Transformers,' ILM light up VES

    "Transformers" and Industrial Light & Magic were the big winners at the sixth annual Visual Effects Society awards Sunday night in Hollywood.

    The giant-robot blockbuster from Paramount and helmer Michael Bay took four awards, more than any other project in any medium.

    Pic took the top movie prize, outstanding visual effects in a visual effects-driven motion picture, as well as best single visual effect of the year for its desert highway sequence.

    ILM's big night did not end there, however, as George Lucas' San Francisco-based vfx factory took home two additional awards, for Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End."

    In something of an upset, the runner-up to "Transformers" for most wins on Sunday was Pixar's "Ratatouille," with three awards: supporting visual effects in a motion picture, outstanding animated character in a motion picture (for Colette) and effects in an animated picture.

    Good for them! The special effects in the Pirates trilogy are amazing, and remarkably realistic. Davy Jones looks like they filmed him in person. They deserve an award for him alone.
