"Transformers" wins effects awards

http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/index...ory=0&id=48292

Transformers Wins F/X Prizes

Transformers and Industrial Light & Magic were the big winners at the sixth annual Visual Effects Society awards Feb. 10 in Hollywood, Variety reported.

The giant-robot blockbuster from Paramount and helmer Michael Bay took four awards, more than any other project in any medium.

Transformers took the top movie prize, outstanding visual effects in a visual-effects-driven motion picture, as well as best single visual effect of the year for its desert highway sequence.

ILM's big night did not end there, however, as George Lucas' San Francisco-based F/X factory took home two additional awards for Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.

The runner-up to Transformers for most wins was Pixar's Ratatouille, with three awards: supporting visual effects in a motion picture, outstanding animated character in a motion picture (for Colette) and effects in an animated picture.

The only other feature to receive an award was Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the sole entry in the special-effects category.

On the TV side, the VES presented an award for best made-for-TV movie to Battlestar Galactica: Razor.

the effects were the best part of the movie by far
Watching the extra features on the DVD was pretty cool.
