Los Angeles: James Bond, Snow White and a whole lot of hobbits and superheroes are in the running for the visual-effects prize at the Academy Awards.

The superhero blockbusters 'The Avengers', 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man' are among 10 films that made the cut for visual-effects nominations for the Oscars on February 24.

The other seven contenders announced Thursday include the Bond adventure 'Skyfall,' 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' 'Cloud Atlas,' 'John Carter,' 'Life of Pi' and 'Prometheus.'

Members of the academy's visual-effects branch will view 10-minute excerpts from each of the films on January 3, and then pick five nominees for the Oscars.

Nominations for the 85th Oscars will be announced January 10.
