Supercut Of Every Oscar Winner For Best Visual Effects From 1929 - 2017

February 14, 2018

This is a supercut of clips from all the Oscar winners for Best Visual Effects from 1929 - 2017, as well as this year's nominees. I thought some of those early years' visual effects were surprisingly good. So -- who do you think is going to win this year? The nominees are (drumroll please) Blade Runner 2049, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2., Kong: Skull Island, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and War For The Planet Of The Apes. Two ape movies in one year, pretty crazy. I think Blade Runner 2049 is going to win though, but that's just me and I know how to rig a vote. I'm just saying, I was elected high school senior class president AND vice president. "But I thought you ran for treasurer?" *wink*

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to hairless, who's still hoping Baywatch wins via an organized write-in candidate effort.

    The case for each (SPOILERS!! obvs):
    GOTG : Framestore & Marvel
    POTA : Fox & Vanity Fair
    SW:TLJ : THR & David Ratajczak
    KONG : ILM & Wired
    BR2049 : Rodeo & MPCVFX

    I'm putting a friendly wager on POTA (mainly coz of all the nekked monkeys). Please join me in guessing and the winner gets a handy behind the bike sheds from Vicky Pollard

    I wonder if popularity or "quality" of a movie even comes into play beyond visual effects in that category. Kong Skull Island wasn't a super well received movie for it winning.

    Tough year, this one. Star Wars was probably the best they've looked ever, with such a better balance of traditional vs CG effects. I'd feel pretty great if Apes won because they've done amazing work over the course of those movies and Andy Serkis will no doubt end up with a special Oscar someday for how great he's done, but it feels like they'd be awarding a body of work and not just an individual film. Blade Runner takes the cake, though, if I'm being sincere. Even with the slow paced plot, the visuals drew you into that world with no doubt or loss of the sense that what you were seeing was real. The scenes where you're seeing memories being created, just some stunning, stunning work.

    Blade runner used a LOT of practical effects and huge sets to get the best performances out of the actors. Star wars had muppet tit milk and muppet yoda finally. I want blade runner to win so bad.

    Most mind-blowing part of the video: realizing Gravity is 5 freaking years old already. Holy freaking time flies... :-(

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    it was weirder realizing that the Fellowship of the Ring is coming up on its 20 year anniversary

    Shit. Will be dead soon.

    I thought that second Kong movie was absolute rubbish. Then again didn't really take it serious after the first 30 minutes so the graphics might've been good.
