The 17th annual VES Awards are being handed out tonight at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, and Deadline will be live-blogging the affair and updating the winners list live. Patton Oswalt is hosting the Visual Effects Society’s gala, which celebrates the best VFX artistry and innovation in film, animation, TV, commercials and video games across 24 categories.

The winner of the VES Award for Photoreal Feature has gone on to win the Visual Effects Oscar 10 of the 16 times it has been presented, but it hasn’t been much of a harbinger for the past half-decade or so. Last year the VES Award went to War for the Planet of the Apes, while the Academy Award was claimed by Blade Runner 2049, as Roger Deakins won for the first time in his 14th nominations. The Jungle Book won both in 2017, but VES and Oscar failed to match up in either of the previous two years.

Battling for Photoreal Feature this year are Avengers: Infinity War — which leads the field with six nominations — Christopher Robin, Ready Player One, Solo: A Star Wars Story and Welcome to Marwen. All are up for the VFX Academy Award as well except for Marwen; First Man also will vie for Oscar gold.

Deadline’s Matt Grobar is at the Hilton, and Erik Pedersen is manning the editors desk. Here’s how we are seeing it.
