"Rise of the Plane of the Apes"
"The Tree of Life"
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2"
"Captain America: The First Avenger"
Upset contender: "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," "X-Men: First Class"
Lowdown: There likely won't be an upset here. Only "Tree of Life" could miss the cut, but it's hard to see "Transformers" really replacing it. The first film shocked by not winning the VFX Oscar and the sequel wasn't even nominated.
