Black Swan was not nominated for a Visual Effects Oscar on Tuesday morning. It didn't even make the Oscar shortlist. Actually, it wasn't even listed on the Academy's shortlist of 15.
Black Swan did earn an effects nomination from the Visual Effects Society for Supporting Visual Effects, which may explain why it wasn't considered for an Oscar if the effects are only considered "supporting". Although I'm not necessarily sure what that means.
Everything said, I don't think it really matters if it gets recognized for an award as long as we realize it was pretty impressive work. If you're not convinced, I think the following visual effects featurette from Look Effects may convince you otherwise.
