Visual Effects Society Awards 2014


"Gravity" was the big winner at the VES awards as predicted with its 6 wins. The Disney hit animation, "Frozen" won 4 while "The Lone Ranger" and "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" won an award each. Nothing could beat the Oscar frontrunner here in these categories. Over at GoldDerby, I predicted The Lone Ranger to win supporting visual effects award when many were predicting Rush or The Great Gatsby to win. Alfonso Cuaron was also awarded the visionary award by VES for his groundbreaking work.
