Videos from the Best Visual Effects Winners of the Last Decade

 matrix_l.jpg

A couple of days ago, we showed you a video clip featuring 100 years of special effects.  It’s amazing how much visual effects have improved over the years, although aside from a few giant jumps, I think they’ve plateaued out just a tad.  I mean, I haven’t seen anything in the past couple of years that would have really wowed me, say, four years ago.  Maybe Avatar will change that.

After the jump, take a look at video clips from the Best Visual Effects Academy Award winners of the last decade.  See for yourself how the effects improve over the years…or if they do at all.
