Interstellar has won this year’s visual effects Oscar. Congratulations to Paul Franklin, Andrew Lockley, Ian Hunter and Scott Fisher, who combined scientific research, computer graphics, miniatures and practical effects to tell Christopher Nolan’s space tale.

takes home the oscar!
DNeg and New Deal take home the Oscar!
