Congratulations to the hundreds of VFX professionals that contributed to this year’s Oscar nominated films! Without your blood, sweat and tears – not to mention innumerable hours of work – these films simply would not exist. Though they only give out one statue at the end of the night, every one of you deserves the recognition.
