REELZCHANNEL - TV About Movies® announced today movie fans will join host Sam Rubin to celebrate a monumental year in movie visual effects with the broadcasts of the 8th Annual Visual Effects Society Awards, only on REELZCHANNEL. The VES Awards recognize outstanding artistry in more than twenty categories of film, animation, television, commercials, and video games.
In 2009, movie fans were treated to a spectacular array of visual effects: The disaster movie 2012 depicted the end of civilization, one crumbling city at a time, while Star Trek had audiences on wild intergalactic adventures aboard the USS Enterprise. And the box-office juggernaut Avatar had audiences packing theaters, wearing 3-D glasses to see the otherworldly awe of Pandora and witnessing a new movie-watching experience.
This year, special recognition will be given to director James Cameron who will be honored with the VES Lifetime Achievement Award and Dr. Ed Catmull, co-founder of Pixar Animation Studios and president of Pixar and Disney Animation Studios with the Georges Méliès Award for Pioneering.
The award ceremony takes place on Sunday, February 28, 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Viewers will see the 8th Annual Visual Effects Awards only on REELZCHANNEL at the following times:
VES Awards Show Premiere
