Watch This Incredible Supercut Of Every Best Visual Effects Oscar Winner

At the 1927/28 Academy Awards, Best Picture Oscar winner Wings was awarded a special plaque for “Best Engineering Effects.” In 1938, the Academy began to regularly honor special effects and sound effects with a combined award for “Best Special Effects.” In 1964, it was given only for visual effects and renamed “Best Special Visual Effects” and in 1977 changed to “Best Visual Effects.”

Usually three films are nominated while other times a single film is honored outright, but no matter how the winner is ultimately chosen, there is no denying that the Academy knows what they’re doing when they pick who to honor with Best Visual Effects. For proof, look no further than this video featuring every winner from Wings up to 2015’s winner, Ex Machina, with a bonus look at 2016’s nominees, Doctor Strange, The Jungle Book, Kubo and the Two Strings, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Who do you think will take home the award this year?
