It wasn't to be for Weta Digital after missing out at the Oscars yesterday.

After earlier being scooped by The Life of Pi for the visual effects prize they have just missed out on production design to Lincoln.

It's the first time since 1991 that a film company received three simultaneous nominations for one category.

The Miramar company was nominated for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Marvel's The Avengers and Prometheus in the visual effects category.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
