Best Visual Effects Oscar Winners

(vimeo link)

Nelson Carvajal put together a few clips of every movie that won an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects from 1977 to 2012, plus each of the nominees for this year’s award. No doubt they will bring back memories. I was struck by the realization that I saw every one of these in the theater until I became a mother in 1998. After that, I was lucky to catch a movie when it finally got to TV. The only one after 1997 that I saw in a theater was Gravity, which is a 2013 nominee. -via Daily Picks and Flicks

I remember when Predator and Innerspace were the only two competing in 1987. Many of us from Manhattan's R/Greenberg Associates, which was responsible for the Predator work, were in a bar glued to the TV. Presenter Sean Connery said, "And the winner is..." (this was back when they still used that phrase) And then he correceted his tense from "is" to "are." As soon as he said "are," we all assumed he was saying R, the beginning sound in the name "R/Greenberg Associates," and the place went nuts! I bet it took 10 minutes for everyone to realize Innerspace had won.
