I still think AoTC visual effects were far superior to Two Towers. However, I think Two Tower won because of it's popularity in the theaters. However, I'm not sure if that is a criteria of winning an Oscar or not. Anyways, congrats to WETA. They've really raised the bar haven't they?

Yeah, both films had great visual effects. I think Gollum put the Two Towers ove the top though. An amazing display of 3d character animation.

That's what ILM gets for not using Maya for their character animation like Weta

Just kidding.
God Bless you and 3D
