Oscars 2016: VES Awards

The VES Awards were last night. They have a lot of awards, so we’ll run through them quickly.

The basics of what you need to know — The Jungle Book won a lot of awards. Five, to be exact. They won for Photoreal FX (the big award), Animated Performance (King Louie), Effects Simulations, Virtual Cinematography and Composting.

Deepwater Horizon won for Supporting FX and Outstanding Model, while Doctor Strange won for Created Environment (NYC).

In the Animated field, Kubo won for Animated Effects, Finding Dory won for Animated Performance (Hank) nd Moana won for Animated Created Environment (Motonui Island) and Effects Simulations.

As your category for the Oscars is Deepwater Horizon, Doctor Strange, The Jungle Book, Kubo and the Two Strings and Rogue One, I would say that puts The Jungle Book as a pretty big favorite, if it wasn’t already. BAFTA is on Sunday, and that should lock that into place even further, as BAFTA tends to have a pretty good history and predicting who will win the Visual Effects category, especially in years without Best Picture nominees in the fold.
