NVIDIANs Honored with Academy Awards for Achievements in Filmmaking

NVIDIA GPUs have been behind every Academy Award-nominated film for Best Visual Effects for 10 years running. But it’s not just our technology that’s been powering a decade’s worth of award-winning work — our people are taking home Oscars, too.

The Academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards honor the people whose work has made significant impacts to the development of technology for films. Among the 27 recipients this year, two NVIDIA employees are being recognized for their achievements: Charles Loop, a principal research scientist, and Jos Stam, a graphics researcher.
