VES Awards 2023: domina i premi Avatar: La via dell'acqua

La Visual Effects Society nella notte italiana ha assegnato i VES Awards 2023, i premi che celebrano l’arte degli effetti visivi in ambito cinematografico e televisivo.

Dopo aver ottenuto la bellezza di 14 nomination (un vero record), il kolossal Avatar: La via dell’acqua è riuscito a portare a casa nove premi, tra cui Miglior Film Fotorealistico, ovvero uno dei premi della VES che più negli anni hanno influenzato la scelta dell’Academy in merito alla categoria Migliori Effetti Visivi. Tra i film animati, il Pinocchio di Guillermo Del Toro ha portato a casa tre premi, tra cui Migliori Film d’Animazione. Sul fronte televisivo, Gli Anelli del Potere ha raccolto tre premi.

Ma diamo una lettura all’intera lista dei premiati.
