Transformers Wins Four VES Awards

Transformers on Sunday won four Visual Effects Society Awards. Think of it as the equivalent as the SAG Awards because it’s their peers awarding them for their work. Transformers won the top prize of the awards with for Outstanding Visual Effects which is a strong indicator it will win the Oscar for Visual Effects. In addition, Transformers won for Single Visual Effect (Highway Sequence), Models and Miniatures and Compositing. Congrats to winners Scott Farrar, Shari Hanson, Russell Earl, and Scott Benza and rest of the Transformers team. Hopefully Oscar night will be just as rewarding.

Also wanted to point out that Battlestar Galactica (excellent show) won Outstanding Visual Effects TV, Pirates 3 and Ratatouille picked up a few and Steven Spielberg got a the lifetime achievement award. The full list of winners is here.
