With Oscar’s big night just around the corner, now is a great time to remind ourselves of some great movies with stunning visual effects from the past. Since this year is almost all special effects, Burger Fiction created a montage of every movie which won an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.
Note from the author says:
[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″]For the 1927/28 Academy awards, the award was for engineering effects. There was no award again until 1938 where it was called a special award “for outstanding achievement in creating special photographic and sound effects. The very next year the award was combined with sound effects and called the Award for Special Effects. It wasn’t until 1963 that the award became the Award for Best Visual Effects (which it is still called today). It was given every year from 1963 to present, with the exception of 1973.[/quote]
Can you imagine how hard it must been to create those scenes back in the sixties?
