VES Awards: Avatar and Up Win Almost Everything

Avatar Performance Motion Capture

James Cameron’s Avatar and Pixar’s Up took home almost all the awards at the Visual Effects Society honors. Avatar took home six, while Up took home three. The only nominated category Avatar didn’t win was Compositing in a Feature Film — sadly, that was the only category that Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 won. Full award results after the jump.
