There has been a lot of talk about whether or not Brad Pitt‘s performance in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was due to the amazing special effects or his acting. After taking a look at a very small amount of the work he did, I would say that it was even harder for him to play the role well due to the special effect. Not only did he have to physcially represent all the different stages of Button’s life but he didn’t even have the help of being on set or working off of the other actors.

It’s truly remarkable to see what they’re with images now. Check out the video on technology that went into making Benjamin Button.

What do you think? Does Pitt deserve the Oscar win?
