Academy: We Will Get Visual Effects Oscar Presentation Right This Year

Snafus in the presentation of the visual effects Oscar last year infuriated the vfx community, which was already in pain after the bankruptcies of Digital Domain and Rhythm and Hues Studios.

According to an Academy insider, the org knows that people were unhappy with last year’s vfx presentation and is committed to handling the category this year in a way that will please the vfx community.

But a deeper issue remains: “I’d love the culture to be changed,” says two-time vfx Oscar winner Rob Legato. Legato argues that awards like last year’s cinematography kudo for “Life of Pi,” don’t acknowledge the role of digital artists in creating the look of the film.

“That should be a shared award,” he says.
