Well, *usually* that would have nothing to do with what movie gets the
effects Oscar. If "Phantom Menace" does nothing "new", just more and
better, it will lose to something else. "Matrix" would not be a bad
choice for the Oscar, that is true. It's partly why "Mighty Joe Young"
lost to "What Dreams May Come" this year. Fur? Seen it. Good comps?
Seen it. 2D oil paintings turned into 3D environments for actors to
run around it? Ya, that's different. So, "Matrix" might have a shot
whether "Phantom Menace" looks great or not.
