Special and Visual Effects : Does academy know what makes a visual effect good?

Does academy know what makes a visual effect good?

There are some years when I can't believe if the academy actually knows what a visual effect is.
I still can't believe how The Golden Compass won over Transformers and POTC 3!
Revenge of the Sith and 2012 didn't even get a nomination! The same with Matrix Reloaded!

WTH?
