The Visual Effects Society (VES) is the entertainment industry’s only organization representing the full breadth of visual effects practitioners including artists, technologists, model makers, educators, studio leaders, and producers in all areas of entertainment from film, television, commercials, and games.
In past award ceremonies, Pixar has been awarded their nominated category (such as in 2012 when Brave won all four nominated awards), however, this is the first year that two Pixar films are nominated within the same categories. Below is a list of all of the animation-related categories with the Pixar nominations highlighted in red.
“We are seeing best in field work that elevates the art of storytelling and engages the audience in new and innovative ways. The VES Awards is the only venue that showcases and honors these outstanding artists across a wide range of disciplines, and we are extremely proud of all our nominees!”Mike Chambers, VES Chair
