\’Inception\’ and \’Dragon\’ win big at VES


At last night’s 9th annual Visual Effects Society Awards, Inception won four trophies,  including Outstanding Visual Effects, Outstanding Created Environment, Outstanding Models & Miniatures and Outstanding Compositing.

How To Train Your Dragon was the other big winner, taking home everything that dealt with animated features.

Caprica, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and the video game Halo: Reach all received awards.


Kilroy: “Both Inception and How To Train Your Dragon were great movies. Inception was especially surprising to me as a fantastic piece of ORIGINAL film making, something that has been sorely missed in Hollywood. Personally, I was a little pissed off that Christopher Nolan wasn’t nominated for a best director Oscar. Yes, the film was nominated for eight other Oscars, but c’mon. David Fincher’s The Social Network was good, don’t get me wrong. I just didn’t see where he had to go above and beyond to get the job done.  Inception was just a MUCH more intricate film, both visually and story wise, and should be honored as one of the best films of 2010.”
