The Visual Effects Society (VES) announced the winners of its Awards last night. The annual event recognizes outstanding visual effects artistry in film, animation, television, commercials, special venues and video games.
The film winners usually go on to win the Oscar in the effects categories. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Inception, Avatar were 3 recent VES winners that went on to receive an Oscar for Best Visual Effects.  Good news for Planet of the Apes for winning the top prize this year.
