Los Angeles, February 16, 2006 – The VES Awards were given out last night during the Visual Effects Society’s (VES) fourth annual gala event at the Hollywood Palladium. The sold-out event attracted more than eight hundred celebrities, visual effects and animation artists, dozens of nominees and members of the film, television and games industries.

“The extraordinary breadth and diversity of the awards were matched only by the extraordinary talent displayed in the room last night,” said Eric Roth, Executive Director of the VES. “It was an eye-popping, visual effects treat equivalent to a triple ice cream sundae with a dozen exotic toppings capped off with the biggest cherry ever.”
