Precursor: 10th Visual Effects Society (2011)

I'm rather astounded that Rango was so well loved. When comparing effects between Rango and several other films, I never would have expected it to win this big, especially not over The Adventures of Tintin. I guess Tintin wasn't really that well loved. On the Effects-Driven Visual Effects from Rise of the Planet of the Apes shows it has all the strength it needs to persevere through Oscar season and win Best Visual Effects at the Oscar. Four out of the five previous winners in this category did so.

In addition to the nominees and/or winners listed below, this year, we're giving you a quick background on each individual precursor including founding year, first awards year and a glimpse at how many predictions the group has gotten right in the last five years. This data can be found below.

As promised, I have posted the history of this particular guild on my website. You can find it by following this link: Visual Effects Society.
