The great dragon Smaug craves gold, and next month he will have the chance to return to The Lonely Mountain with three new golden baubles. 's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has been nominated for three Academy Awards. It has earned nominations in Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, and Visual Effects.
While I may have had my issues with the film, and I did, I have to give credit where credit is due. The effects and sound work in Desolation of Smaug were tremendous, and well-deserving of Oscar recognition.
What do you guys think?
