Ahead of the ceremony for the 89th Academy Awards, set to go down later this month, here we take a stroll down memory lane by looking at every Best Visual Effects winner, ever. We know what you're thinking, and yes, we did bring you a similar clip last year, but this particular supercut has been updated with the winner from last year, this year's nominees, and a slew of other great excerpts.
For some history on the award:
For the 1927/28 Academy awards, the award was for engineering effects. There was no award again until 1938 where it was called a special award "for outstanding achievement in creating special photographic and sound effects. The very next year the award was combined with sound effects and called the Award for Special Effects. It wasn't until 1963 that the award became the Award for Best Visual Effects (which it is still called today). It was given every year from 1963 to present, with the exception of 1973.
The 89th Academy Awards show takes place on February 26.
