Christopher Nolan's "Inception" dominated the 9th annual Visual Effects Society Awards winning the top prize of Outstanding Visual Effcts in a VFX-driven feature. The mind-bending film won all four categories that it was nominated for.
DreamWorks Animations' "How to Train Your Dragon" also received love from the Ves sweeping the feature animation categories including Outstanding Animation in an Animated Feature.
The ceremony, held at the Beverly Hilton, also paid homage to Nolan by giving him the inaugural Ves Visionary Award. The great Ray Harryhausen was given the much-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award.
Here's the complete list of the winners of the 9th annual Visual Effects Society (Ves) Awards (Check our Awards Avenue for complete winners/nominees for all award-giving bodies):
Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual-Effects Driven Feature Motion Picture
Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Feature Motion Picture
Last night, the Visual Effects Society announced the winners of their 9th annual Ves Awards, recognizing…you guessed it! The best in visual effects for films, television, commercials and video games. The big winner of the night was none other than Inception, which shouldn’t come as a huge shock, winning four awards that include Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects Driven Motion Picture. How to Train Your Dragon was the main victor in the animated film department, a well-deserved win. The big win it nabbed was for Outstanding Animation in an Animated Feature Motion Picture. Hereafter and Deathly Hallows: Part 1 also earned some wins; the latter taking something isn’t a surprise, but the dull, uninspired effects of Hereafter getting both this and an Oscar nod is baffling. Where is the love for the incredible work done on Scott Pilgrim?
