The 2016 Visual Effects Society Awards Announced! Star Wars, The Revenant & Game Of Thrones Win!

Star Wars TFAThe VES have handed down their annual awards fro excellence in visual effects across film, television and gaming. Star Wars: The Force Awakens took out the top prize for film with The Revenant nabbing best supporting VFX for The Bear Attack alongside 2 other gongs. The Good Dinosaur took out Best Animated Feature whilst The Order: 1886 took out Best Game Project. Game Of Thrones dominated the TV categories with 3 wins. The biggest disappointment here is Mad Max: Fury Road failing to get a nod, granted 90% of the effects work were practical not visual, but the work done on that film did deserve a mention here.
