Academy Awards: Scientific And Technical Award Honorees Announced

7 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences named the 19 achievements that will be celebrated by the Academy at the Scientific and Technical Awards Presentation Saturday, Feb. 15.

The awards will be presented separately from the Oscars, and are, indeed, awarded through a different process. The technologies honored do not need to have been invented in the year 2013 to win, rather, they need to have been proven to be vital contributions to filmmaking.

“This year’s honorees have in a myriad of ways enabled today’s moviegoing experience.

Here is the entire list as presented in the press official Academy press release:
