The biggest awards show for the entertainment industry and film fans is just around the corner. The Academy Awards celebrates everything from the best performances, to screenplays and everything in between. Now the Academy has revealed the 10 films that have been nominated for best visual effects.

It has been a visually impressive year for cinema and their list includes "Gravity", "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug", "Pacific Rim", "Elysium", "Iron Man 3", "The Lone Ranger", "Oblivion", "Star Trek Into Darkness", "Thor: The Dark World" and "World War Z".

All the films included definitely showed off some visually stunning landscapes and scenes but out of the list, "Gravity", "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and "Thor: The Dark World" stand out the most.

Peter Jackson really knows how to make Middle-Earth so rich and vibrant in his "Lord of the Rings" and "Hobbit" films and Alan Taylor did a fantastic job bringing the beautiful and complex essence of the comic-book world of Asgard and the nine realms to the big-screen. The frontrunner in my humble opinion is Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity", as what he did with light, sound and the impressive visuals of earth, really transported us like never before to be able to experience space with the astronauts themselves.

Out of the list, who would you like to see take the visual effects oscar home? Let us know in the comments section below!
