In kind of a surprise (most thought this would go to Interstellar), Dawn of the Planet of the Apes topped the VES Awards last night, making it the frontrunner for the Oscar in Visual Effects as well. Frankly, this is the deserved winner of the category, at least in my opinion, but I wonder if Interstellar could still win at the Oscar with a lot of non-visual effects people voting as well.
