Academy Awards: Best Visual Effects Oscar winnersPosted: February 10, 2014
I’m a sucker for visual effects. There’s something very special about being left speechless after seeing the imaginary come to life. When done well, visual effects can overwhelm and astonish the viewer. Even more importantly, they can make the film and be an integral part of the story.
Above is a retrospective montage of Oscar winners from 1977 onwards, when a specific award category for visual effects was reintroduced with the current name, “Best Visual Effects”. Not surprisingly, it includes many of my personal favourites.
