Los Angeles, CA, USA — The Visual Effects Society (VES) announced the winners of its 10th Annual VES Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The annual event recognizes outstanding visual effects artistry in 23 categories of film, animation, television, commercials, special venues and video games.
More than a thousand attendees — filmmakers, producers, directors and members of the visual effects community– gathered to recognize the year’s best work and the artists who created it. Rango was the evening’s most honored project with four awards, including Outstanding Visual Effects in an Animated Feature Motion Picture, Outstanding Animated Character in an Animated Feature Motion Picture, Outstanding Created Environment in an Animated Feature Motion Picture, and Outstanding Virtual Cinematography in an Animated Feature Motion Picture. Hugo, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Transformers: Dark of the Moon all took home two awards in the Feature Motion Picture categories, while Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones each garnered a pair of awards in the Television categories.
Stan Lee, who will have a cameo in the updated Amazing Adventures of Spider-man at Universal’s Islands of Adventures, received the Lifetime Achievement Award and visual effects pioneer Douglas Trumbull, the creative force behind Secrets of the Luxor Pyramid and Back to the Future: The Ride, received the Georges Méliès Award at the show, which was hosted by Patton Oswalt. Antonio Banderas, Lou Ferrigno, directors Chris Miller, Marc Webb and Jennifer Yuh Nelson, and a host of luminaries were on hand to present awards. A surprise appearance by Martin Scorsese, whose film Hugo received two awards, was one of the evening’s highlights.
ILM won the Special Venue Project category for Transformers: The Ride. Other nominees in the category included Digital Domain for Amazin’, Reel FX for Humbugged! Rockettes to the Rescue, and Super 78 Studios for Typhoon 360. ILM was also nominated in this category for Star Tours: The Adventures Continue.
